Value-Based Contracting: An Essential Guide for Physician Organizations

APG believes value-based arrangements are superior in their positive impact on the cost and quality of patient care. To support our members in these agreements, we are pleased to announce the release of Value-Based Contracting: An Essential Guide for Physician Organizations. This new resource is available exclusively for APG members.

The Manual addresses the key issues surrounding risk-based contracting and meeting the operational requirements of these agreements. This essential guide was developed by a remarkable group of APG members with decades of experience in risk contract negotiation and administration.

A few highlights of the Manual’s content:

• Preparation for risk contracting
• Legal issues and general contractual terms
• Sample contract language
• Compensation terms
• Term and termination
• Data sharing and use

This special resource includes invaluable information regarding planning, business relationships, and financial and administrative operations that goes far beyond payor negotiations.

APG welcomes your questions and feedback on this new Manual. APG members may contact Jennifer Jackman, Vice President of Business Development jjackman@apg.org, for information on how to download a digital copy of the Manual.
