Abstract:

"We propose that hospital-based physicians be paid directly from hospital budgets as opposed to the current practice of paying them separately through provincial insurance plans. Hospitals would then engage doctors and pay them appropriately--either by salary, fee-for-service, or a blend of methods. This would result in stronger incentives for providers to better deploy resources but may also lead to potential side effects, such as cost shifting and lower quality of care. In this Commentary, we discuss how incentives to both hospitals and doctors could be carefully designed to avoid pitfalls and to promote more efficient use of resources"--Page 1
