Payment Reform and Quality Improvement

Most health care in the United States continues to be purchased in an outmoded and inefficient fee-for-service model, which promotes the overuse of unnecessary, expensive care while ignoring differences in quality. PBGH works with policymakers to advance the development and application of alternative payment models that hold providers accountable for quality of care and promote the use of affordable primary care.
