Association between value-based incentive programs and catheter-associated urinary tract infection rates in the critical care setting.
This letter discussed a study which was done on value-based incentive programs to reduce the number of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) in intensive care units (ICUs). The study used data from 592 hospitals in the District of Columbia and 49 states. Researchers found these incentive programs did not significantly reduce CAUTI.
