U.S. Healthcare has developed a quality-based compensation model through which its primary care physicians, hospitals, and
specialists can earn additional compensation based on the quality and cost-effectiveness of the care they provide to their
patients. The model clearly delineates the expectations of U.S. Healthcare, and in contrast with traditional payment models,
encourages improvement in performance. In addition, the model aligns the incentives of U.S. Healthcare purchasers, participating
providers, and members in order to provide high-quality, cost-effective care that maximizes patient outcomes.
