New Guide Decodes Value-Based Care Payment Models

Tampa, FL. December 16, 2019The American Association for Physician Leadership® (AAPL) announced today the debut of the book, “Value-Based Healthcare and Payment Models:  Including Frontline Strategies for 20 Clinical Subspecialties,” by Grace E. Terrell, MD, MMM, CPE, FACP, FACPE, and Julian D. (Bo) Bobbitt Jr., JD.

The book, available in print and convenient eBook formats, addresses an issue with which physician leaders are already familiar: All healthcare systems must soon move to value-based care. It’s not a matter of “if” but “when.” The problem is that most healthcare stakeholders lack the expertise to successfully affect the shift from pay-for-service to pay-for-performance models.

To better equip physician leaders, Terrell and Bobbitt, simultaneously visionary and practical, have culled and vetted key strategies from a large and disorganized body of sources to provide a cohesive, comprehensive guide that answers the question, “How can we make this succeed?”
