Commitment Statement:

The American College of Physicians (ACP), representing 141,000 internal medicine physicians (internists), subspecialists, and medical students, is committed to the implementation of alternative payment models, including the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), the PCMH neighborhood/specialty practice model, and accountable care organizations (ACOs).  ACP has developed numerous tools and resources to help physicians make the transition to these alternative payment and delivery system models, and through its High Value Care initiative and its Center for Patient Partnership in Healthcare, has promoted ways for patients and clinicians to work together as partners to achieve the highest quality, patient-centered health care.

To achieve the goal of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people, the U.S. health care system must substantially reform its payment structure to incentivize quality, health outcomes, and value over volume. The Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) was established as a collaborative network of public and private stakeholders, including health plans, providers, patients, employers, consumers, states, federal agencies, and other partners within the health care community.
