Target Audience This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of practicing physicians.
Statement of Need Physicians have a persistent fear of the unknown when it comes to how they will get paid under new models. These webinars will make the case that most new payment models will continue to rely on a modified Fee-for-Service (FFS) payment system for the foreseeable future. Rather than replacing FFS entirely, most new models are FFS hybrids with enhancements that enable more accurate cost and quality projections and performance benchmarking. This is made possible by emerging data analytic and sharing capabilities which give physicians the confidence to assume more risk in their payment contracts.
Statement of Competency This activity is designed to address the following ABMS/ACGME competencies: practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communications skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice.
