On Wednesday, July 13, 2016 the PCPM Work Group held their kick-off meeting. The meeting opened with the introduction of group members, brief overview of the LAN, and discussion of the Guiding Committee’s charge to the work group. The rest of the day was spent in a wide-ranging discussion addressing the group’s vision of primary care payment in the future, considering the important influence of external factors such as MACRA and CPC+, and beginning to draft foundational principles that will guide the development of recommendations. The Group will prioritize the recommendations that could be implemented within 12-24 months following the work group’s conclusion and support the Primary Care Payer Action Collaborative in their efforts. The Work Group spent time at the end of the meeting planning for their upcoming activities including regular calls and producing a draft white paper that will be made available prior to the LAN Fall Summit (October 25) for all stakeholders to review and provide feedback on. The group also discussed its operating norms, which included how its work will be publicly transparent and inclusive of a broad range of stakeholder input.

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.
