Statement of Need:
Health system reform has accelerated the movement toward quality, value, accountable care and integration. While the majority of physicians in the U.S. still practice in private practice settings, there is growing evidence that physicians are moving toward a variety of new practice models to meet the anticipated changes precipitated by the Affordable Care Act. Some of the new practice models include IPAs that focus on coordinated care, accountable multispecialty groups, and large integrated systems of health care delivery. This program will look at each of these models, explore their pros and cons, their impact on physicians, patients and their relationship, and how physicians at various stages of their careers can adapt to and benefit from a potential practice setting transformation.
