Physicians are at the center of all payment, delivery reforms
Regarding the recent article “Inspecting the role of the physician in ACOs” (ModernHealthcare. com, April 4), based on a new study in Health Affairs, I’m surprised that this topic just surfaced. Physicians are at the center and the key to the success of all payment and care delivery reform.
And yes, in order to achieve meaningful change there needs to be a critical mass of attributed lives. This may require providers to align their Medicare ACOs with other Medicare Advantage value-based care arrangements.
