Despite widespread adoption of value-based care (VBC), also known as pay-for-performance, its impact on patient safety is inconsistent. This article outlines one VBC program which includes more than 700 hospitals. In contrast to some other programs, the VBC program bases the overall score on nationally-normalized safety measures and does not penalize lower-performing hospitals. Lower-performing hospitals receive extra financial support and are rewarded for year-over-year improvement.
