A little more of this, and I’ll reconsider my no-membership status:
CHICAGO, June 27 — The American Medical Association wants third-party payers to put the brakes on pay-for-performance initiatives until there is evidence that such plans benefit patients.
Moreover, after five hours of debate — often over the addition or deletion of a single word — the AMA’s House of Delegates said that it will “actively oppose” any pay-for-performance programs that do not meet the AMA’s five pay-for-performance principles.
Now, follow through. Please.
