On May 5, UAPD and Santa Cruz County teams will meet for the first time to discuss policies for the compensation incentives that go into effect this July 1. Doctors will become eligible to receive a Quality Incentive of up to 5% of their base hourly rate, and a Productivity Incentive of up to 10% of their base hourly rate. The policies will standardize the elements for earning the incentive. Elements such as availability for patient visits, staff support and administrative time will determine the amount of the Productivity Incentive. The Quality Incentive shall be based on progress notes, standards for psychotropic medication, peer reviews and EHR standards.
Once the UAPD team feels we have made sufficient progress, a general membership meeting to discuss this topic will be called. In the meantime, feel free to contact Albert Munoz with questions or comments (firstname.lastname@example.org).
