The IPPS and the Future of Physician-Led Integrated Care
The inaugural meeting of the Integrated Physician Practice Section heralds a new opportunity for physicians from physician-led clinically integrated organizations or those moving to such systems of care, to have an active voice within the AMA, participate in education programs related to their issues and engage in peer-to-peer learning and networking. Keynote Bruce Hamory, MD, EVP, Managing Partner, Geisinger Consulting Services, Geisinger Health System will offer an environmental overview focusing on changes in care delivery and reimbursement methods and how existing and formative integrated practices are preparing for the future. Richard Deem, SVP, AMA Advocacy, will follow with a targeted discussion of key legislative issues related to integrated care and the important role the IPPS can play with regard to AMA advocacy efforts. Roundtable discussions will follow and focus on the morning presentations; participants will identify key issues for the AMA IPPS to focus on to advance physician-led integrated care as the model that holds promise to deliver high quality, team-based, cost appropriate care.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
- Discuss how some existing and formative integrated practices are preparing for the future.
- Distinguish key legislative issues related to integrated care and the role the IPPS can play to advocate on behalf of patients within the context of AMA advocacy efforts.

I. At the June meeting
During the morning education session, attendees will break into 6-8 roundtables (depending on attendance); each table will focus on issues related to integrated care including AMA advocacy, policy, education, and the role of the IPPS with regard to each topic. One discussion leader at each table will report back to the full assembly on highlights of the table discussion. There is 30 minutes for the entire "report back" process. Roundtable leaders will have one conference call in advance of the June meeting.
Summary: Seeking 6-8 roundtable leaders, one conference call in advance of June meeting.
AMA Election - Candidate Interview Committees
The IPPS will interview candidates for the AMA president, Board and Council on Medical Service. The only available time is during the IPPS's Friday afternoon business meeting. There will be three separate committees (so attendees don't have to miss too much of the IPPS meeting). The interviews are as follows:
- Council on Medical Service (2 volunteers needed to interview 2 candidates, time commitment 20-minutes);
- AMA Board (2-3 volunteers needed to interview 7 candidates, time commitment 70-minutes);
- AMA President (2 volunteers needed to interview 2 candidates; time commitment 20-minutes).
Summary: Seeking 6-7 physicians (including one committee Chair) to interview AMA election candidates during the IPPS afternoon business meeting.
It's unlikely the IPPS will need to vote at this meeting, but just in case, a Tellers Committee will be established to count votes.
Summary: Seeking 2-3 physicians (including one committee Chair) to count votes during the IPPS afternoon business meeting.
II. Beyond the June Meeting
IPPS Governing Council
As existing Governing Council members reach the end of their terms starting in 2015 (or earlier if an existing member leaves prior to the end of his/her term), elections will be held to fill the vacant positions. The time commitment to serve on the Governing Council is significant with a minimum of two live meetings in June and November and multiple conference calls throughout the year.
2013 Interim Meeting Education Planning Committee
Guided by the IPPS Governing Council, a committee of 3-5 physicians will develop the programming for the 2013 Interim Meeting on Friday, November 14, Gaylord National, National Harbor, MD (just outside DC).

IPPS Strategic Planning Committee
Made up largely of members of the IPPS Governing Council, but interested members are welcome to participate, this Committee is charged with updating the IPPS strategic plan.

Summary: 2-3 volunteers are welcome, possibly one live meeting and occasional conference calls and email discussion.
IPPS Reference Committee
Starting at the Interim Meeting 2013, it's possible the IPPS will form a reference committee to conduct either virtual or live reference committee hearings to make a recommendation to the Assembly regarding IPPS resolutions or reports.
Summary: Potentially seeking 2-3 volunteers to serve on a virtual or live reference committee. If virtual, the time commitment is 1-2 conference calls; if live, the time commitment involves attendance at the Annual or Interim Meeting.
The IPPS is seeking ways to keep members engaged in between meetings in a discussion that furthers the IPPS mission - to advance through policy and education the interests of physician-led integrated health care delivery. Potential venues include existing social media platforms such as a private LinkedIn discussion group or other venues. Staff support will be available.
