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.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to

  1. Identify environmental factors contributing to the transformation of health care delivery in relation to high quality, safe and efficient health care delivery;
  2. Describe how physicians in small groups can organize and move toward participation in the development of IPAs dedicated to accountable care; and
  3. Specify how medical associations have succeeded in actively engaging and assisting physician members through this time of change.

Target Audience:
Physicians who attended the live program at the Interim Meeting 2011 who want to share the recorded version with physician colleagues and staff, as well as physicians who were not able to attend and are seeking to learning about clinical integration.

Statement of Competency:
This activity is designed to address the following ABMS/ACGME competency(ies): Medical Knowledge about established and evolving biomedical, clinical, and cognate (e.g., epidemiological and social-behavioral) sciences and the application of the knowledge to patient care; and Interpersonal and Communication Skills that result in effective information exchange and teaming with patients, their families and other health professionals.

Accreditation Statement
The American Medical Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation Statement
The American Medical Association designates this enduring material for a maximum of 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
