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