Podcast Episode 108: Advancing Health Equity Through Alternative Payment Models. HCPLAN HEAT Co-Chairs
June 23, 2023
From WEDI's 2023 Spring Conference! The Health Care Payment and Learning and Action Network (HCPLAN) established the Health Equity Advisory Team (HEAT) to help identify and prioritize opportunities to advance health equity through alternative payment models (APMs). HEAT’s goal is person-centered and focuses on leveraging APMs to help make needed care more accessible, drive better patient outcomes, and reduce disparities.
We welcomed HEAT's co-chairs, Dr. Marshall Chin from the University of Chicago, and Karen Dales from Amerihealth Caritas, to discuss the group's work and their mission to address and eliminate health disparities while identifying payment models that aid communities. The session was moderated by Michael Pattwell from Edifecs who also serves as WEDI's Payment Model Workgroup Co-Chair.
