LAN Releases Updated APM Framework

The Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN) released an updated Alternative Payment Model (APM) Framework document.  The APM Framework White Paper defines alternative payment model categories and establishes a common set of conventions for measuring progress on APM adoption. This version reflects experience and developments in alternative payment models over the past year and a half since the original document was released.


The document is available here.


The Department of Health and Human Services established LAN, a forum of public and private stakeholders to help advance the work being done across sectors to increase the adoption of value-based payments and alternative payment models (APMs).

Visit the LAN website for more information.
