SGR Fix: Implications for Physician Payment
Wednesday, July 1, 2015
3:30 p.m. ET, 2:30 p.m. CT, 1:30 p.m. MT, 12:30 p.m. PT
(90 minutes with live Q&A)

The passage of a permanent repeal of the deeply flawed Sustainable Growth Rate formula fixes the most critical physician payment problem and includes policy changes that move to a value-based payment system that rewards quality and the ability to accept alternative payment models such as bundled payments and ACOs. But understanding the implications of these payment changes and how to prepare is essential.

Please join the AHA's Physician Leadership Forum for a webinar to review the policy changes and hear how one organization is preparing for alternative payment models and value-based payment system. Akin Demehin and Melissa Jackson, senior associate directors, AHA Policy, will provide an overview of the policy changes and measures that will make up the new payment system. Dr. Bryan Gamble, president and CEO, Florida Hospital Medical Group will share their work to prepare their medical group to manage the clinical and financial risk in alternative payment models.

How a Community Health Needs Assessment Influenced a Hospital's Strategic Plan
Thursday, July 16, 2015
1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT, 11:00 a.m. MT, 10:00 a.m. PT

Massachusetts General Hospital's (MGH) 2012 community health needs assessment, in which communities prioritized substance use, led to the creation of a new hospital initiative to improve clinical care for patients with substance use disorders. This new initiative builds on years of prevention work by the Center for Community Health Improvement through multi-sector coalitions in the community that has achieved measurable results. MGH now has a comprehensive approach along every rung of the health impact pyramid, from prevention to chronic disease management. This webinar, in collaboration with the Association for Community Health Improvement, will describe the strategies used to cultivate leadership and create the bridge between the community and the hospital.
