Since the passage of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015, Alternative Payment Models (APM) will have increasing influence on the operations of rural providers. These APMs will create a pressing need for rural providers to look at how they can respond through delivery system reform at the local, state and national level. This accountable care organization pre-conference will devote attention to the implications of these programs on rural communities and how communities can respond.

Register for the pre-conference event today and review the most recent agenda.
