2. Establish a ceiling price for surgeons whose device, implant or other product costs exceed national benchmarks, according to Jeff Peters, president and CEO of Surgical Directions.

3. Track Surgical Care Improvement Project scores and compare them with value-based purchasing thresholds and peers, according to Michael Simon, MD, a practicing anesthesiologist and regional director for North American Partners in Anesthesia.
