On This Week in Health Innovation my guest is Don Crane, President and CEO of America’s Physician Groups (APG).
APG is the nation’s leading professional association representing medical groups and independent practice associations modeling best in class in coordinated care. APG is the nation’s largest trade association that explicitly promotes capitation as the payment model for its members, all of whom accept various forms of risk-based capitation or other population-based payment.
America’s Physician Groups mission is to provide advocacy and education for physicians, and to lead the coordinated care movement across the nation. APG is a professional association, representing over 300 medical groups, IPAs and integrated healthcare systems across the nation.
Its members are committed to responsible payment models that assume accountability for both cost and quality, believing that patient-centered, coordinated, and accountable care offers the highest quality, most efficient delivery mechanism, and greatest value for patients. APG members have successfully operated under this budget-responsible model for several decades.
