Medicare Advantage (MA) Learning Collaborative

AMGA’s Medicare Advantage (MA) Learning Collaborative is an 18-month peer-to-peer shared learning program, where participants gain a deeper understanding of how to maximize the effectiveness of MA and other value-based contracts.

Organizations participating in this Collaborative are positioned to excel in value-based contracts, including MA. They will learn how to be successful with MA by:

  • Aligning with the Triple Aim + 1 (improve quality, total cost of care, patient experience, physician wellness)
  • Discovering how to develop the risk-based infrastructure necessary to be successful in MA and other value-based contracts
  • Understanding and managing your population through risk stratification, data analytics, clinical programs, and home-based care
  • Exploring how provider groups transform care delivery systems to meet the social needs of patients with MA coverage
  • Ensuring compliance with documentation regulations and engage physicians in the process

The learning collaborative commenced in September 2019 and will conclude in March 2021.
