Healthcare is moving from a pay-for-service model to a pay-for-performance model. Many in fact, arguably most healthcare professionals do not understand how this will happen. Its being introduced gradually through the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and the Value-based Modifier Program.

Neither program is very well understood in the industry, yet if providers choose not to participate, they will start to see significant penalties up to 9% reductions in Medicare reimbursements, depending on the size of the providers organization and their participation in other incentive programs.
