Theme Issue

Payment Reform

Sponsored by The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

HSR December 2010HSR developed the idea of Theme Issues to provide a vehicle for attracting and publishing ground-breaking research on a topic of major policy significance for the nation. HSR's December Theme Issue on Payment Reform was generously sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and features articles on pay-for-performance, risk-adjusted capitation, prospective payment, and geographic variations in care, among other topics. We believe that readers will find these articles are relevant for several of the most salient ongoing policy debates.
