The LAN Guiding Committee held a virtual meeting on September 11. Sam Nussbaum, chair of the APM Framework and Progress Tracking Work Group, shared the group’s efforts to develop guiding principles and an APM category framework to inform the Population Based Payment (PBP) and Clinical Episodes Payment (CEP) work groups. Members supported a proposal to share this interim work with the affiliated community through the LAN collaboration portal in order to incorporate feedback from the broader LAN community early in the development process (Handshake). The Guiding Committee co-chairs shared plans to partner with the Core Quality Measures Collaborative. They also updated members on selection of chairs and members for the next two work groups. CMS staff provided an update on plans to launch a purchaser and a consumer/patient affinity group in the next few weeks.

Members reviewed goals and activities for expanding broad awareness about payment reform and for engaging and equipping key stakeholders. A communications and engagement plan will be provided for review at the next Guiding Committee meeting.

The Guiding Committee is planning an exciting LAN Summit on October 26, and looks forward to meeting with key stakeholders in Arlington, VA. A detailed summary of this meeting will be posted on the Guiding Committee page.

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.
