NYC Health eHearts Rewards P4P

This is Pay For Performance program worth reviewing.
Unlike many other P4P programs, this will derive information from the electronic health record! Its a good start and one of many programs to become available. SV

Rewarding & Recognizing Providers for Healthy Hearts

eHearts is designed for adult primary care practices using an EHR that can transmit automated quality reports of core measures from the EHR to the QRS (examples of EHRs that are developing this functionality include NextGen and Epic). Practices interested in applying for the program must meet the following criteria:

1. Be a non hospital-based practice;
2. Verify completion of at least 1 in-person meeting with a PCIP Quality Improvement Specialist (for PCIP practices only);
3. Be able to transmit an automated report* from the EHR to the QRS;
4. Have a minimum number of patients specified by DOHMH across all core measure risk factors documented in the EHR (e.g., patients ages 18-75 AND with ischemic vascular disease, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, OR hypertension).
