The Consumer and Patient Affinity Group (CPAG) is a channel for consumer and patient advocacy groups to provide important insights into the impact of APMs on patients and consumers, describe better health outcomes from the perspective of consumers and patients and define the care experience that APMs should deliver. CPAG members help identify consumer priorities and principles for APMs and inform the work of the Guiding Committee and Work Groups. Download our brochure
