How you ramp-up to full-scale APMs is crucial. Even if your multi-specialty group or health system receives some value-based payments with downside risk, your success hinges both on financial viability and retention of your clinicians and patients. If you delay APM adoption only after reviewing the potential on your bottom line, you’ll need to pay more attention to the competitionthat is lapping at your foundations of your provider network and consumers.
Here are three key organizational decisions that will determine how your APM adoption proceeds:
- Should we own, enter into a joint venture, or participate in APM(s)?
- How much risk should we adopt, and with whom?
- How can our network strategy lead to APM success?
