The deeply con­ser­va­tive Ge­or­gia con­gress­man and or­tho­pe­dic sur­geon’s past po­si­tions sug­gest he will try to make fed­eral pay­ment and qual­ity re­port­ing rules more fa­vor­able to physi­cians, par­tic­u­larly those in small prac­tices.

“How do we move to­ward more val­ue­based pay­ment and other in­no­va­tions that’ll sup­port long-term trans­for­ma­tion of de­liv­ery sys­tems and our fi­nanc­ing of health­care? Those ob­jec­tives don’t change be­cause of the change in the ad­min­is­tra­tion.” —Mike Thomp­son, CEO of the Na­tional Al­liance of Health­care Pur­chaser Coali­tions
