  1. Fulltext. Physician financial incentives and feedback : Failure to increase cancer screening in Medicaid managed care.

    Article - En anglais



    A randomized controlled trial evaluated the impact of feedback and financial incentives on physician compliance with cancer screening guidelines for women 50 years of age and older in a Medicail health maintenance organization (HMO).


    Half of 52 primary care sites received the intervention, which included written feedbakc and a financial bonus.

    Mammography, breast exam, colorectal screening, and Pap testing compliance rates were evaluated.


    From 1993 to 1995, screening rates doubled overall (from 24% to 50%), with no significant differences between intervention and control group sites.


    Financial incentives and feedback did not improve physician compliance with cancer screening guidelines in a Medicaid HMO.
