Pay for performance in health systems: Theory, evidence and case studies

Professor Scheffler will provide a conceptual framework that shows how pay for performance works in health. Then he will present the results of a survey on pay for performance in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries. Finally, Dr. Scheffler will discuss the results of selected case studies on P4P and end with a discussion of what the benefits and limitations are for using pay for performance in health.
