Obama Launches Information Sharing Forum To Encourage Alternative Health Care Payment Models
President Obama on Wednesday announced the Healthcare Payment Learning and Action Network, an "information-sharing forum" that aims to help providers shift from traditional fee-for-service payment models to alternative payment models. The network will host meetings for providers, state governments and consumer groups to discuss and share best practices for that transition. CMS said more than 2,800 participants have enrolled in the network, and they will be tasked with establishing "organization-specific goals for alternative payment models."
