The LAN’s Executive Forums—the CEO Forum and the Care Transformation Forum—convene health care leaders committed to shaping the strategic direction for value-based payment in the U.S.

Charged with advancing and accelerating APM adoption, the CEO Forum provides guidance on opportunities for strengthening incentives and capacity to accelerate the transition to two-sided risk models across markets. Launched alongside the CEO Forum, the Care Transformation Forum (CTF) is designed to influence and shape care delivery transformation necessary for the success of value-based health care and payment. Comprised of clinical executive health care leaders, the CTF’s primary focus is identifying the tools and strategies that prepare clinicians for success in delivering high-quality care that improves patient outcomes and reduces costs across a multi-payer environment.

Executive Forum Goals and Focus Areas

Addressing Social
of Health

Reducing disparities and improving health equity through reallocation of resources to address SDOH (e.g., housing, food insecurity, transportation).

Reducing Ineffective Care and Inappropriate Utilization of Services

Focusing on appropriateness, care variation, and person-centered care for all patients through dissemination of best practices.

Increasing Data Transparency and Interoperability

Providing patients and caregivers with cost, quality, and appropriateness of care data in an actionable, easily understood, and accessible manner. Ensuring that electronic data can be easily shared meeting advanced technology standards (e.g., HL7 FHIR) to improve care delivery.

Ensuring Timely
Data and Analytics

Ensuring providers adopt timely data and analytics capabilities, combining multiple data sources (e.g., electronic health record and claims data), to enable successful participation in value-based payment models.

Market Shifts
to Value

Providers who are successful in FFS may lack a compelling reason to transition to APMs, but may be unable to compete with the person-centered care delivered by providers in APMs. Introducing APMs through multi-payer pilots in these markets (particularly for independent and smaller providers) may increase competition and reduce FFS entrenchment.


Improving predictability for providers through improved risk adjustment for complex patients, offering stronger incentive structures for Medicaid beneficiaries, and flexibility on waivers.
