Table 1 Indicators for calculating incentives, weights and values assigned to performance levels

From: Using pay for performance incentives (P4P) to improve management of suspected malaria fevers in rural Kenya: a cluster randomized controlled trial

  Indicator Weight Scale
1 Percent of laboratory registry entries with patient number (all patients) 5 % 100 % - full marks
>90 % - 60/100
>85 % - 50/100
<85 % - 0/100
2 Percent of AL registry entries with patient number (all patients) 2.5 % 100 % - full marks
>90 % - 60/100
>85 % - 50/100
<85 % - 0/100
3 Percent of antibiotic registry entries with patient number (all patients) 2.5 % 100 % - full marks
>90 % - 60/100
>85 % - 50/100
<85 % - 0/100
4 Sum of sensitivity and specificity 20 % >190 - full marks
>170 - 80/100
>150 - 60/100
<150 - 0/100
5 Percent of patients given AL without a malaria test (slide or RDT) 30 % <5 % - full marks
5–10 % - 70/100
11–20 % - 50/100
>20 % - 0
6 Percent of patients with a positive malaria test given AL 15 % 100 % - full marks
>90 % - 70/100
>80 % - 50/100
>70 % - 25/100
<70 % - 0/100
7 Percent of patients with a negative malaria test given AL 25 % <5 % - full marks
5–10 % - 70/100
11–20 % - 50/100
>20 % - 0
  1. The scale indicates what percent of the money for that indicator is awarded at each performance level. For example, if less than 100 % but at least 90 % of patient records had a patient number, then 60 % of the money for that indicator was awarded. AL, artemether-lumefantrine; RDT, rapid diagnostic test
