Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The objective of this study was to develop and implement a web-based survey to collect information on the reported knowledge, attitudes and practice impact of pay-for-performance (P4P) among providers in the specialty of urogynecology.

STUDY DESIGN:

All members of the American Urogynecologic Society were invited to participate in a web-based survey. The questionnaire focused on reported knowledge, attitudes and practice impact of P4P.

RESULTS:

Complete responses were obtained from 212 members for a survey response rate of 17.6%. A minority of participants (9.0%) reported having "a lot of knowledge" of the P4P reimbursement model. Fifty-five (25.9%) participants reported that the hospital or healthcare system where they worked had some involvement with P4P reimbursement.

CONCLUSION:

A minority of participants reported having a lot of knowledge of P4P, even though current involvement with some type of P4P reimbursement was reported by >25% of participants.
