Advancing Health Equity through APMs

Alternative payment models (APMs) present a significant opportunity to incentivize changes in delivery to help make care more accessible, drive better patient outcomes, and reduce inequities in both care and outcomes. The Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (HCP LAN) convened the Health Equity Advisory Team to advise the HCP LAN on using APMs to advance equity, resulting in a new guidance document. The document provides stakeholders with actionable guidance on how they can leverage APMs to advance health equity in ways that are both aligned and tailored to meet their communities’ needs.
