In a 4-group, multicenter, cluster randomized trial that enrolled 340 primary care physicians and 1503 of their patients who had hyperlipidemia and elevated cardiovascular disease risk, Asch and colleagues assessed whether outcome-related financial incentives for physicians, patients, or shared (both physician and patient) incentives would be more effective than no incentives in achieving reductions in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). The authors found that shared financial incentives for physicians and patients, but not incentives to physicians or patients alone, resulted in a statistically significant difference in reduction of LDL-C at 12 months.
