Aggregate Amount of Shared Savings/Losses
Performance Year 1 (2014): $0.00
Performance Year (2015): TBD
Performance Year (2016): TBD
How Shared Savings Are Distributed:
In 2014 Delmarva Health Network (DHN) physicians and caregivers working together were able to lower the total cost of care for our patients while meeting quality goals. The reductions in total cost of care achieved were not sufficient for DHN to receive payment from Medicare so no savings were shared with physicians.
