Most medical practices, independent and hospital-owned, exclusively weight their physician incentive programs on the productivity of the physicians. Their income distribution formula (IDF) will pay more to those physicians who see more patients, produce more revenue or work relative value units (wRVUs), or have higher collections from their services. Unfortunately, the result of these productivity-only based plans often creates an individual approach to care delivery, when a group approach is far better.
