FR18 | Coming Soon to Your Town: Post-Acute Networks and APMs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will discuss the importance of Post-Acute Network formation, the processes involved in selection and maintenance and the impact it will have on post-acute care providers. The importance of networks to the value-based payment (VBP) concept will be reviewed, along with suggestions as to how to assist with positioning your facilities for participation. An integral part of these changes will be advanced alternative practice models (Advanced APMs), which are designed to move clinicians away from fee-for-service to value-based payment. Advanced APMs are APMs where providers must bear more than “nominal financial risk” for monetary losses and ensure quality, in addition to other criteria. Currently there are no specific PA/LTC APMs, but there are some that will involve these settings. There is a significant opportunity for the Society to not only participate effectively in pertinent APMs, but more importantly to create new models specific for the populations we serve.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Discuss Why Post-Acute Networks are being formed, and how participating Facilities are chosen.
(2) Compare the merits of MIPS and Advanced APMs.
(3) Review current Advanced APMs that include PA/LTC care sites.
(4) Describe the potential advantages of a PA/LTC specific Advanced APMs.
