Leadership Perspectives on Providing Accountable Care -- Part 1

Part 1 - Pathways for Physician Success in Accountable Care Organizations and Healthcare Payment Reform

CME credit is no longer available for this program.

Faculty

Harold Miller

Description

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) establishes voluntary pilot projects to develop three new care delivery and payment models: bundling, the medical home, and accountable care organizations (ACOs). In addition to these Medicare and Medicaid programs, the private market is rapidly moving to adopt these arrangements. Enabling individual and small group physician practices - which account for the majority of physicians currently practicing in the U.S. -- to participate in these new arrangements is a stated goal of many health care policymakers and of industry, and is a top priority of the AMA. The AMA is uniquely positioned to provide both education about these reforms and the "Pathways" for physicians to participate - i.e. a hands-on, "how to" guide for this critical segment of physicians.

Learning Objectives

  1. Explain the concepts of accountable care organizations (ACOs), bundling, and medical home.
  2. Identify the necessary pathways to enable physician participation in these reform models.
