PROMETHEUS Newsletter: Issue 7

PROMETHEUS Newsletter: Issue 7

October 2010

As we enter the home stretch of our implementation grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) we here at PROMETHEUS Payment are taking stock of the lessons we have learned thus far.

As the PROMETHEUS model matures, we are seeing this once-theoretical payment reform concept turn into a practical and powerful tool for providers and payers in post-health reform America. From the news that we are only two small steps away from having some of our PAC definitions endorsed as Comprehensive Complications of Care measures by the NQF to the new feature on the “Essential Ingredients of PROMETHEUS” in this issue of the newsletter, you will learn more about some of the fruits of our labors.
