  1. Criteria for selection of a payment method for inpatient medical rehabilitation.

    Article - En anglais

    This article presents the results of a 3-stage Delphi survey designed to identify the policy criteria that should govern the evaluation of alternative payment methods and guide the selection of a payment method for inpatient medical rehabilitation.

    The Delphi survey (n=85) included four groups of participants ; consumers (n=8), providers (n=35), payers (n=15), and health services researchers (n=27).

    The Delphi survey uncovered 16 evaluation criteria.

    Delphi participants evaluated each criterion on a 10-point scale (1=not important ; 10=greatest importance).

    Respondents value maximize patient/family outcome, maximize access, and maximize efficiency as the three most important criteria.

    Respondents report that minimize financial risk is the least important criterion.

    The results from both stage 2 and stage 3 (response rate=85%) indicate a high level of consensus across the four respondent groups.
