IncentOne and Georgia Hospital Health Services Form Exclusive Partnership to Deliver Incentive Solutions to Georgia Providers and Hospitals
Partnership to Provide Incentive Solutions to Drive Provider and Patient Engagement
LYNDHURST, NJ and Atlanta, GA - March 28, 2012 - IncentOne, the leading provider of incentive solutions to the healthcare community, and Georgia Hospital Health Services, Inc. (GHHS), a subsidiary of the Georgia Hospital Association (GHA), have entered into an exclusive partnership to deliver incentive programs to GHA member hospitals and other interested stakeholders. The Program, called "Provider Rewards" targets four initiatives critical to impacting a hospital's bottom line:
- Rewarding hospital staff (providers/employees/residents) for operational and quality performance programs such as patient safety, infection control, preventing never events, facilitating checkout, HCAHPS, patient satisfaction, minimizing readmissions, and meeting credentialing standards.
- Rewarding hospital employees in internal health and wellness programs.
- Rewarding patients to take responsibility for their care such as adherence to post-discharge protocols.
- Rewarding patients for using hospital services such as health and wellness centers.
The Program enables Georgia hospitals to align incentive spending to activities and outcomes that impact quality measures, patient satisfaction scores, cost drivers and revenue opportunities. The Program also offers options to reward patients for activities that impact a hospital's payment stream and potential denial or reduction in fees under the current reform environment. The Program can be extended to offer various payers - such as Medicare, Medicaid, governments, employers and private payers - a mechanism to drive provider behavior and to administer pay for performance programs.
