The Washington-based Leapfrog Group has released an upgraded Incentive and Reward Compendium and a new P4P (pay for performance) Decision Tool.

According to the company, The Leapfrog Incentive and Reward Compendium is a free, searchable, sortable database that categorizes and describes financial programs such as quality bonuses, and non-financial programs such as public recognition. Funded by the New York-based Commonwealth Fund, the Compendium can be found at www.leapfroggroup.org/compendium2.

The Leapfrog Group calls on others to submit entries to help build a comprehensive data base at http://www.leapfroggroup.org/compendium_submit.

The P4P Decision Tool, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), is an online, interactive guide designed to help users understand the range of options available in designing and implementing an incentive and reward program. It can be accessed at http://www.leapfroggroup.org/compendium_dt_home.
