Collaborative for Clinical Integration and Value
The CCIV immersion session will explore the clinical integration journeys of medical groups and health systems.

Pre-conference Immersion Session 102
Compensation Boot Camp
Successful transformation from fee-for-service to value-based/ risk payment arrangements requires rethinking physician compensation structures, no matter the ownership status of your organization. Changing the compensation structure for your group gives rise to numerous other elements and considerations, including culture, philosophy, strategic initiatives, metrics, production/bonus allocations, change process, and alignment. This session will bring together compensation experts from AMGA medical groups that are leading this this shift to value-based payment.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to describe various perspectives regarding compensation design including the process for addressing physician compensation, analysis of the formula currently in place, issues and challenges, and a prognosis of what they think their plans may look like in five years.
