There's an interesting article on an alternative payment model in this month's New England Journal of Medicine entitled "Building a Bridge from Fragmentation to Accountability ó The Prometheus Payment Model".
As described by the authors "The model encourages two behaviors that fee for service discourages: collaboration of physicians, hospitals, and other providers involved in a patientís care; and active efforts to reduce avoidable complications of care (and the costs associated with them). It accomplishes these goals by paying for all the care a patient needs over the course of a defined clinical episode or a set period of management of a chronic condition, rather than paying for discrete visits, discharges, or procedures."
