The quality of nursing home care in the US is a longstanding policy concern. In response, the use of market-based approaches, like pay-for-performance and quality report cards, has grown in recent years. To date, these programs have been somewhat mixed in terms of improving performance. Dr. Grabowski will broadly review the policy issues and discuss several studies focusing on nursing home care and challenges to improving care.
