Last month, the AMS Journal Spring issue featured an article on value-based care and how it can improve patient outcomes and bring shared savings. We spoke with SAMA Healthcare in El Dorado about their approach to value-based care, as well as AMS Member Shawn Purifoy at Malvern Family Medical Clinic who explains how the business side of shared savings works.
We also spotlight the Population Health Institute at NYITCOM at Arkansas State and how Dr. Brook Laurent is educating the next generation of physicians in the area of population health.
