Maximizing Your HQEP Incentive Payment

Projected Distribution and Year-to-Date Performance

The Hospital Quality & Efficiency Program (HQEP) is an agreement between Augusta Care Partners and Augusta Health. The program’s goal is to manage costs and improve quality for the health system. If targets are met, Augusta Care Partners will distribute incentive payments to our eligible network physicians. The projected total distribution is currently at $269K, and a detailed dashboard of year-to-date performance on HQEP metrics is below.

The network is currently under-performing on colorectal cancer (CRC) screenings for the Augusta Health health plan population (and leaving a potential $23,900 payout on the table). For information on the network’s “DO SOMETHING” campaign to improve the rate of CRC screenings, check out these Team Trends articles: “Do Something”: Colorectal Cancer Screening Initiative and Colorectal Cancer Screening: How to Get It Done.
