Value-Based Healthcare and Payment Models: Including Frontline Strategies for 20 Clinical Subspecialties


As value-based care is coming of age, deciding how to start can be an overwhelming task. Risks are high and success with the new models is challenging and time consuming. This book fills an important need by providing concrete and proven strategies to aid in an organization s successful transformation.

The book is filled with practical, no-nonsense advice on the shift to value-based care in both the private and public healthcare sectors. This is the time when healthcare stakeholders need to rethink their own added-value strategies in a manner that best serves patients and providers alike.

In the complicated world of payment and delivery system reform, this book deconstructs the most challenging concepts for the novice yet provides sophisticated insights for even the most seasoned executive.

BONUS! The authors also lay out high-value strategies for 20 different subspecialties with specialty-specific changes in the way medicine is practiced and paid for.

From the Foreword

"With this manual, leaders of health systems and medical groups can achieve these goals and align their physicians, management, care teams, payers, and patients to deliver exceptional care that will improve quality while lowering costs, resulting in better care, better patient experience, and more affordable health care."

Jerry Penso, MD, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer, AMGA

The American Association for Physician Leadership has helped physicians develop their leadership skills through education, career development, thought leadership and community building.

The American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) changed its name from the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) in 2014. We may have changed our name, but we are the same organization that has been serving physician leaders since 1975.
