The greatest concern I have for all these shared risk models is that in addition to morbidity, there needs to be a cost for mortality. There is very little actual cost to healthcare systems for morality, and in a purely financially driven model, it would often be the best outcome. For instance, if a hospital has a statistically significant worse mortality rate for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, there needs be a clear fiscal consequence.
