The medical convention signed in 2011 introduced a pay-for-performance (P4P) mechanism in medical compensation : in P4P. Doctors receive monetary incentives for achieving targets on predefined performance measures – in terms of quality of care and financial savings. The aim of this paper is to assess the French P4P with an original study on Ile-de-France physicians. We test the hypothesis that medical performance is partly dependant on composition of patient base – performance is then partly independent of his implication and responsibility. Our results show that doctors having more sick patients have more chances to obtain a good performance. Furthermore, doctors having more poor patients have fewer chances to obtain a good performance.
