The Partnership to Empower Physician-Led Care (PEPC) is making a concerted effort to help independent physicians shift to value-based care models, providing them the support and necessary tools to accomplish that transition.
The founding members of the joint effort include Aledade, the American Academy of Family Physicians, California Medical Association, Florida Medical Association, Medical Group Management Association and Texas Medical Association/PracticeEdge.
PEPC Executive Director Kristen McGovern told Healthcare Dive the coalition will push its agendas through regulatory and legislative strategies.
“We believe that we are unique in our mission to support not only independent physicians and physician-led groups, but particularly independent physicians moving to value-based care,” McGovern said. “Over the past year, the value-based care movement has started to take off.”
