Are You Prepared For APMs?
As of 2018, 34 percent of health care payments were tied to a value-based payment program and the rate is expected to rise based on payers' commitments to move to alternative payment models (APMs). To support members in the transition to value-based payment, the ACC has created the APM Framework. By considering the key questions under each of the four modules of the Framework, the cardiovascular care team can assess their readiness for participation in programs centered on quality, value, and risk-based payment.
