Considerations for Clinic APM Participation

Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN) welcomes Ryan Brown, Project Manager at Comagine Health, for a webinar entitled, “Considerations for Clinic APM Participation.” We understand – it’s a big decision to join an alternative payment model (APM) or accountable care organization (ACO). To help practices decide what’s best for themselves, Ryan will provide tools and examples that can be used to consider the pros and cons of participation. He’ll share stories of practices that made the switch, and will offer lessons learned during the process of practice transformation.  Ryan will also cover cost-benefit analysis techniques to take into account during the decision-making process. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand what to consider before joining an Accountable Care Organization (APM participation)
  2. Assess profit and loss potentiality by reviewing the experience of your colleagues
  3. Analyze the costs and benefits of APM participation
