Cleveland Clinic Florida in Weston and Cincinnati-based TriHealth are among the first hospitals to join Humana's national value-based Hospital Incentive Program, which reimburses hospitals based on quality improvement and performance metrics.
Unveiled in April, the insurer's national Hospital Incentive Program pertains to hospitals treating Humana's commercial members. The program will compensate hospitals based on three key areas: patient experience, patient safety and patient outcomes.
Here are the first four participating hospital systems:
1. Cleveland Clinic Florida
