WASHINGTON, June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, CAPG released its 2017 Guide to Alternative Payment Models (APMs). The 2017 guide builds upon previous CAPG publications and includes six brand new case studies for a total of 20 unique, firsthand analyses of APMs. Each case provides insight into a different payment and delivery model, including an examination of how it works and why it's successful, and the specific improvements in patient care that it generates.
"CAPG members are in the vanguard of the volume to value movement, and have decades of broad and deep experience with advanced APMs," said Donald Crane, CAPG's President and CEO. "These case studies are intended to facilitate higher quality patient care and encourage innovation in healthcare delivery by demonstrating how physician groups are succeeding in various value-based payment models. We are pleased to share our members' experience with the healthcare community."
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) incents participation in APMs, and 2017 marks the first year of the law's implementation. The CAPG guide is an invaluable tool for any medical or physician group seeking to transition away from fee-for-service to an alternative payment model. CAPG members' unparalleled expertise with APMs clearly establish a path forward towards higher quality, accountable healthcare for all.
