The program highlights specific areas that health-care managers can focus on to achieve success.

Learning Objectives:

     1.    Recognize and evaluate the key measures affecting VBP performance under the current program.
     2.    Recognize the mechanism and methodology used to rank performance under VBP.
     3.    Evaluate the needed actions to improve performance under the program.
