PMID:  10158694     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
To prepare for capitated payment, physician group practices must gather essential data on service utilization and cost of services, must develop appropriate compensation and incentive plans for physicians, and must analyze and, if necessary, modify their practices's clinical and business operations. Those group practices that take these steps will be positioned to profit from capitated payment.
