Payment by results: how can payment systems help to deliver better care?

┬áBy The King’s Fund (2012)

This report reviews the role and objectives of payment systems in the English NHS, focusing on Payment by Results (PbR), which accounts for around 30 per cent of the total English NHS budget. It also considers the experiences of other countries using similar payment systems. It explores whether such systems are still fit for purpose, given changing policies and priorities, such as the need for disease prevention, the prevalence of long-term conditions, the changing economic environment. It argues that more flexibility should be encouraged in payment systems to accommodate change and offer the right incentives for cost-effective, high-quality care, and considers the policy implications of this.
