SGR Fix: Implications for Physician Payment

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

The passage of a permanent repeal of the deeply flawed Sustainable Growth Rate formula fixes the most critical physician payment problem and includes policy changes that move to a value-based payment system that rewards quality and the ability to accept alternative payment models such as bundled payments and ACOs. But understanding the implications of these payment changes and how to prepare is essential.

This webinar reviews the policy changes and highlights how one organization is preparing for alternative payment models and value-based payment system. Akin Demehin and Melissa Jackson, senior associate directors, AHA Policy, provide an overview of the policy changes and measures that will make up the new payment system. Dr. Bryan Gamble, president and CEO, Florida Hospital Medical Group shares their work to prepare their medical group to manage the clinical and financial risk in alternative payment models.
