The PATH program annually rewards physicians who meet certain performance-based criteria, including achieving or exceeding compliance targets for 17 specific Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures, including the percentages of eligible UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage members who received a breast cancer screening or colorectal cancer screening. Other measures evaluate the percentages of members who adhere to their medications to help manage their diabetes, high blood pressure or cholesterol.
The PATH program has four components:
- Patient Support and Communication
- Actionable Patient Data and Reporting
- Financial Compensation for Doctors
- Practice-Based Support
