Summary of "Are community health centers' chief executive officers' compensation related to clinical performance?"

Most research of chief executive officer (CEO) compensation in the health care industry has been limited to hospitals. This study expands our knowledge of CEO compensation into the nonhospital areas of the industry, specifically community health centers (CHCs). CHCs are safety-net providers that are an integral part of the U.S. health delivery system for medically underserved populations. Since the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the federal government has created financial incentives for CHCs to improve care through access and quality performance criteria. To promote quality improvement, CEOs need to set their organization's priorities. One method used to achieve this goal is to tie the CEO's compensation to the organization's quality performance. However, there is a gap in our knowledge if CHCs' CEOs compensation is associated with quality performance outcomes.
