OAKLAND, Calif., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) welcomes Leah Binder, CEO of The Leapfrog Group to the third annual National Pay for Performance Summit at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, February 27-29, 2008. This national summit is the leading forum on pay for performance to enhance healthcare access, quality & efficiency.

"The Leapfrog Group has made outstanding contributions toward the improvement of healthcare quality and patient safety" stated Tom Williams, executive director, IHA. "We are delighted that The Leapfrog Group has selected Leah Binder as its new CEO effective March 10, 2008, as her experience is extensive and relevant to this important work."

Ms. Binder will participate in the opening plenary session on the role and impact of pay for performance and will introduce fellow keynote speakers presenting on the current P4P landscape.

The Med-Vantage and Leapfrog web-survey was conducted in 2007 and included 75 pay for performance sponsors that provided responses based on 2006 measurement year data.

IHA is sponsoring the National Pay for Performance Summit building on the success of last year's conference which attracted more than 700 healthcare leaders from 35 states and six countries. Co-sponsors of the summit include Bridges to Excellence, Leapfrog Group and National Business Coalition on Health. The primary goal of the 2008 Summit is to continue the important ongoing dialogue about the appropriate role and structure of pay for performance in both the private and public sectors. This includes exploring key policy issues and practical challenges for implementing pay for performance, its potential to achieve meaningful improvements in healthcare access, quality and efficiency, and its influence on payment reform and value-based purchasing.
