At APG, we have a several priorities that we bring to the forefront as educational resources for our members.
Take a look at some of our Top Priorities
America’s Physician Groups annually releases this highly effective tool when demonstrating what our coordinated care systems can accomplish through innovation on a wide array of services. The publication features select examples of creative and effective initiatives implemented by our organizational members, and this vehicle for sharing best practices has also stimulated a good deal of innovation throughout our membership since 2011.
The Core Measures Collaborative is a multi-stakeholder effort including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the National Quality Forum (NQF) and physicians, consumers, and purchaser representatives. America’s Physician Groups sits on the steering committee and work with cross-sectional industry partners to bring alignment to quality measurement and reporting across payers and programs.
Our country is experiencing an opioid epidemic affecting millions of Americans and their families. America’s Physician Groups is committed to educating our members on best practices to help fight the country’s prescription opioid epidemic. We have created an opioid guide to help support this national healthcare movement.
As we all know, there is wide variation in healthcare costs and quality throughout our country. In California, there is now respected, published data to support how key quality performance and cost measures are vastly superior in HMO products when measured against PPO products. This alone affects 30 million Californians on a multi-payer platform with commercial insurance, Medicare and Medi-Cal data.
Our Practice Transformation initiatives are designed to help our physician group members move from volume-based care delivery to coordinated, patient-centered services. Transforming clinical and business operations can enable physician groups to improve quality outcomes, cost efficiency, and satisfaction for both patients and providers.
