Albany, N.Y. (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
With health care reform at the center of national media attention, CDPHP® is in the spotlight once again. Bruce D. Nash, MD, MBA, senior vice president and chief medical officer at CDPHP, is scheduled to testify in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, July 18, at the House Energy & Commerce Committee’s subcommittee hearing on payment reform.
“Using Innovation to Reform Medicare Physician Payment” will focus on innovative payment and delivery models in the private sector and how those may be applied to the Medicare system.
At the hearing, Dr. Nash will discuss CDPHP’s Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) program, which has helped transform the way participating physicians care for their patients.
The EPC program has gained national attention after demonstrating that patients get higher-quality, more cost-effective health care when paid in a manner that supports spending more time with the sicker patients and organizing their office workflows to enhance access for the patient and coordinate their care.
CDPHP was recently chosen by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to participate in the nationwide Comprehensive Primary Care initiative designed to enhance and improve care for Medicare patients.
The 10 a.m. hearing will be webcast. To watch, click here.
