The focus in this article is on the development and comparison of RVS's based on alternative data sources and construction methods. Results suggest that medical procedures' values are preserved across alternative charge-based RVS's.

The objectives of this study were to develop a methodology for computing these resource costs and for melding them into a relative value scale; to apply this methodology to a limited number of medical and surgical services; and to compare the resulting relative values to those of the California Relative Value Study and to prevailing by: Studies have been conducted over the past decade to develop a Resource-Based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS) for physicians' services.

Policymakers view an RBRVS as a potential tool to pay physicians. The Resource-Based Relative Value Scale – RBRVS: A Threat to Private Medicine by Jane M. Orient, MD “To Each What She Deserves”: an Early Analysis Would-be reformers of the Medicare payment system have resuscitated an old idea.

How physicians use clinic time has important implications on quality of care, patient trust, and malpractice suits, and is one of the components of physician payments in the resource-based relative value scale.

Abstract We have developed a resource-based relative-value scale as an alternative to the system of payment based on charges for physicians' services.

Resource inputs by physicians include (1) tota. the Resource-Based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS) used by Medicare, as part of their workers compensation programs. We conducted telephone surveys with officials from 20 state agencies currently using either the Medicare RBRVS or the major commercial alternative known as Relative Values for Physicians (RVP).

Resource-Based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS) method for reimbursing physicians. Like the relative value units (RVUs), which are designed to provide physicians with higher reimbursements for more costly services, the GPCI is split into three components: the physician work GPCI, the practice expense GPCI and the malpractice insurance GPCI.
