Innovators share insights into customizing practice payment models

Innovators share insights into customizing practice payment models

An AMA webinar at 7 p.m. Eastern time Sept. 18 will explore how to design and implement a sustainable payment model that fits the individual physician's practice. Register today to participate.

As the final webinar in a seven-part series hosted by the AMA Innovators Committee, this webinar will provide the last piece of the puzzle for achieving a practice structure that fosters high-value care—both in care delivery and payment.

Physician innovators who have implemented successful payment reforms will share their insights into building the infrastructure and establishing the partnerships that enable physicians to create sustainable payment models for their particular circumstances.

Presenters will discuss how to use data to build hybrid models that employ the right mix of bundled payments, care management fees and fee for service and how to form partnerships with other physician groups, hospitals and payers that will lead to a successful payment model.

The first six webinars in the series are archived for on-demand viewing. They cover such topics as providing team-based care to optimize practice workflow and increase value, improving care coordination without moving to an employment model, and boosting value by benchmarking.

Physicians can earn continuing medical education credit in the form of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ by participating in or viewing any of the webinars in this series. Registration is free for AMA members; nonmembers can sign up for $30. If you're not an AMA member, join today.
