Physician Payment 2.0: The new menu of payment options
July 28, 2011
 
 
The American Medical Association (AMA) has set forth its proposal to eliminate the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula and transition to a new menu of physician payment and delivery innovations. This 60-minute webinar, led by Jeremy Lazarus, MD, AMA president-elect, will:

 

  • Discuss new initiatives and pilot programs being tested in Medicare and the private sector.
  • Cover the AMA's advocacy efforts with Congress and the administration around the physician payment issue
  • Explain the AMA's comments on the proposed federal ACO rule
  • Describe the AMA's educational resources for physicians on physician payment
 
Harold Miller, executive director of the Center for Healthcare Quality and Payment Reform, will also join the discussion. Miller is a nationally recognized expert in accountable care organizations and other delivery system innovations, and he is well-versed in real-life examples of physicians who have successfully redesigned practices to improve care coordination and quality.
