Old Adversaries AHIP, AMA Launch Accountable Care Partnership

Two health care sector heavyweights— AHIP, the insurance trade group, and the American Medical Association (AMA), a physician group — are teaming up on an effort to boost value-based care by increasing data sharing. A health care industry insider says that the tentative partnership between two longtime adversaries is just the latest indication that, due to plan sponsor pressure on carriers and providers, value-based care could become the industry standard in independent physician practices and primary care.

AHIP, AMA and an additional partner, the National Association of Accountable Care Organizations (NAACOS), on July 25 rolled out a “playbook” for providers and insurers seeking to adopt value-based reimbursement or become partners in an accountable care organization (ACO). The document, which the three groups say is just the first of several such releases, focuses on how providers and plans can effectively share both individual medical and population data.
