When Population Health News asked how alternative payment models could help improve population, they got two different but complementary perspectives.   Arcadia chief medical officer Rich Parker, MD talked about the clinical value of the incentives in APMs, which encourage delivering the right care to the right patient at the right time.

Meanwhile, Arcadia customer CareMount Medical’s chief financial officer and chief population health officer Kevin Conroy, MS explained the seven key initiatives his physician-led, ambulatory-based multi-specialty medical group has pursued to move toward value based care.

Ranging from care coordination to data analytics to developing a preferred network, CareMount’s value based care strategy aligns all parts of the organization in service of their patients.
