Washington, D.C. March 26, 2020 — Although everyone in our field endeavors to continue caring for patients, each other and the families in our communities, healthcare leaders in particular clearly recognize the unprecedented challenges we face in trying to carry out our responsibilities as effectively as possible.

To help healthcare professionals better manage the evolving nature of COVID-19, the associations listed here are collaborating closely to provide the healthcare field with our best resources available.

Tampa, FL. December 16, 2019 — The 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?”
