Share Your Perspectives on Different Practice Models

July 28th, 2016 by Kareo

For the second year in a row, Kareo has partnered with the American Academy of Private Physicians (AAPP) to conduct the Practice Models Perspectives Survey. This survey seeks to gain a better understanding of independent physicians’ perceptions around various payment models, including private pay, concierge, value-based programs, telemedicine, and traditional fee-for-service.

Industry research has shown that many independent physicians are concerned about whether or not they can be adequately prepared from the growing shift to value-based reimbursement. As a result, they are testing or fully transitioning to other options like concierge, direct-pay, and virtual models. For the second year, Kareo has partnered with AAPP to investigate this trend more broadly, seeking to understand the challenges and benefits of each payment structure. Furthermore, this survey seeks to determine if a hybrid practice model, which takes into account various payment models, could solve issues of contention that physicians have with their current practice model.

“Kareo’s mission to help independent practices be successful aligns perfectly with the goal of this survey,” said Tom Blue, Chief Strategy Officer of AAPP. “The information we will gain from this survey is critical in understanding what success looks like for those practices in the coming years.”

“We are very excited to partner with the AAPP again to conduct this survey,” said Rob Pickell, Chief Strategy Officer of Kareo. “It is our hope that Kareo can use the data to help expand our offerings to better support all practice models.”

Healthcare providers and those who manage their practices can access the survey through the following link for a chance to win an Apple Watch, an iPad, or a one year AAPP membership: Private Practice Model Perspective 2016.
