TurningPoint Safety and Quality Award Program
Eligible specialists may participate in the TurningPoint Safety and Quality Award Program. This reward-based program provides an incentive when your patients have fewer complications, infections, hospital readmissions and Emergency Room visits following their surgical procedures, as well as reduced out-of-pocket costs associated with their surgery.
Orthopedic specialists already are eligible for this program. Beginning September 1, 2023, spine specialists will also be eligible to participate.
You must opt-in to the Safety and Quality Award Program to receive a quality award bonus payment. Award payments are calculated based on the performance of the surgeons within your orthopedic practice/group, and the following criteria must be met for each surgical procedure:
- Quality & Safety
- Infection & Risk Management
- Site of Service Optimization
- Procedure Documentation Standards
Payment levels are categorized by type of service and based on your practice/group’s ability to demonstrate consistent use of the program’s best practice standards.
