California Value Based Pay for Performance (VBP4P)
The California Value Based Pay for Performance (VBP4P) program is the largest alternative payment model in the United States. Founded in 2001, it is a statewide initiative managed by the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) on behalf of 10 health plans representing a significant number of HMO/POS members in California. IHA is responsible for collecting data, deploying a common measure set and reporting results for approximately 200 physician organizations (PO). The program represents the longest running U.S. example of data aggregation and standardized results reporting across diverse regions and multiple health plans. California consumers benefit from the availability of standardized performance results from a common measure set, available to the public through the State of California, Office of the Patient Advocate (OPA) Health Care Quality Report Card.
