Faulkner E, Mauskopf JA, Bae J. Hospital contracting trends and implications for adoption and use of new health technologies. JMCM. 2009;12(4):16-22.


Reimbursement approaches in U.S. managed care medicine, associated with provider and payer incentives to provide appropriate patient care, have different implications for new health technology acceptance. This paper seeks to (1) characterize current trends in hospital contracting types and associated risk-management strategies from the hospital and payer perspectives, and (2) characterize the implications of such risk-mitigation strategies on health technology adoption, access, and diffusion.
