Watch on-demand

For several years, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has championed the adoption of Alternative Payment Models (APM) to drive high-quality and cost-efficient care through incentive payments. Engaging in accountable care and other alternative contracts drives collaborative quality improvement, spurs innovation, better coordinates care for people with multiple chronic conditions, and helps achieve better outcomes at lower cost. But adopting APMs can be challenging, requiring investments in provider network management, population health, advanced analytics, and more.
