APG On American Healthcare

America’s national healthcare costs are unsustainable, largely due to the antiquated, expensive fee-for-service payment system. APG President and CEO Don Crane sits down with leading healthcare executives, physicians, and other national leaders to explore the growing movement toward value-based care models that lower costs and improve the quality of healthcare for patients. If you are interested in national healthcare reform, budget-based prospective payment models, and risk-based capitation or other population-based payment models, this show is for you!
