Association between the Implementation of a Population-Based Primary Care Payment System and Achievement on Quality Measures in Hawaii

Primary Health Care
In its first year, the 3PC population-based primary care payment system in Hawaii was associated with small improvements in quality and a reduction in PCP visits but no significant difference in the total cost of care. Additional research is needed to assess longer-term outcomes as the program is more fully implemented and to determine whether results are generalizable to other health care markets.
