Hospital Value-Based Purchasing
The Fiscal Year 2018 Hospital VBP Program adjusts hospitals’ payments based on their performance on four domains that reflect hospital quality: (1) the clinical care domain, (2) the patient- and caregiver-centered experience of care/ care coordination domain, (3) the safety domain, and (4) the efficiency and cost reduction domain. Each domain is weighted at 25% of the Total Performance Score (TPS).
Each data set includes the following data points:
A measure/dimension score
This represents the higher of either the achievement or improvement points.
An achievement score
Scores awarded to hospitals that achieve certain levels of performance compared to other hospitals.
An improvement score
Scores awarded to hospitals that improved over its own baseline period performance.
