The Top 5 VBP4P Audit Questions

#1

What is Healthcare Value Based Pay for Performance (VBP4P)?
Healthcare Value Based Pay for Performance (VBP4P) programs reward hospitals, physician practices and other providers with both financial and non-financial incentives based on performance on select measures. These performance measures can cover various aspects of healthcare delivery: clinical quality and safety, efficiency, patient experience and health information technology adoption. Sponsors of VBP4P programs typically include government agencies, health insurance plans, employers, healthcare providers, and a variety of coalitions.

 

#2

I want to self-report my California VBP4P data. Do I need an audit?
Yes, in order to self-report your physician organization data, you need to have an audit conducted by an NCQA -certified licensed organization, like us. The California P4P program is the largest non-governmental physician incentive program in the United States. Founded in 2001, it is managed by the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) on behalf of multiple health plans representing well over 10 million insured persons.

What are the components of an audit?
The VBP4P audit begins with a kickoff meeting to review the process, schedule, and designate roles and responsibilities. Next is the VBP4P ROADMAP. Your PO answers questions to baseline information the auditor uses to assess the conformance to specifications. We then review the program code your PO uses to produce the VBP4P clinical measures. We will also conduct an onsite visit to observe your systems and processes. We will ask you to produce a series of queries which help validate your results. One of the most important steps is our review of the VBP4P dataset. We validate your results, benchmarking them to other self-reported groups and comparing the year-over-year results. The audit culminates with a Final Audit Report, summarizing the audit methodology and findings.
