An alternative payment model gained endorsement from a body of policy experts tasked with helping the administration identify ways to shift physician payment from volume to value.
With one member absent, the Physician Focused Payment Technical Advisory Committee (P-TAC) voted 7-3 that Project Sonar, an “intensive medical home model” for targeting patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), met the criteria to qualify as an advanced alternative payment model (APM) at a meeting on Monday.
The proposal now awaits a final decision from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
