The Alternative Payment Model (APM) Framework is composed of closed-ended questions introducing areas of focus within four categories – Organizational Readiness, Clinical Practice Transformation, Reporting and Analytics, and Financial Risk – that ACC members should consider when evaluating participation in an APM. The categories are modular, enabling users to self-select criteria applicable to their practice environment.
The framework was developed to guide ACC membership through the most critical implications the cardiology community should consider when evaluating APM participation. Future consideration for development of a cardiovascular specialty or disease-focused APM may be revisited.
