"America’s Physician Groups Creates Task Force To Develop Future APMs " -Joanne Finnegan
At a time when many physician practices are frustrated over the lack of advanced alternative payment models (APMs), America’s Physician Groups hopes to be part of the solution. The professional association for accountable physician groups announced the launch of a new task force to help develop future advanced APMs. The task force will be co-chaired by two APG members experienced in risk bearing contracting, Melanie Matthews, CEO of Physicians of Southwest Washington, and Niyum Gandhi, executive vice president and chief population health officer of the Mount Sinai Health System. The task force will focus on two goals: educating and sharing best practices among APG members and advocacy aimed at key members of Congress and officials at the Department of Health and Human Services and CMS.
