Published: 24/01/2012

In this video interview, Dr Josep Figueras, Director of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies and Head of WHO European Centre on Health Policy, provides an overview of pay for performance – a payment model that rewards health care providers for meeting pre-established performance targets.

Dr Figueras outlines the current trends across Europe in the development of pay for performance, and considers how the system could be applied more broadly, beyond payments to physicians.

Dr Figueras presented at the Nuffield Trust’s inaugural European Summit, in January 2012.
