The American Hospital Association (AHA) and the American Medical Group Association (AMGA) members are invited to apply for a learning fellowship on managing population health and succeeding in the new physician payment models that take effect in 2019, also known as Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). 

The AHA-AMGA Learning Fellowship is a national-level comprehensive program that addresses critical success factors such as leadership, culture, structure, execution, alignment, reimbursement and physician compensation. The Fellowship will begin in July 2016 and conclude in October 2017.

Participants in the AHA-AMGA Fellowship will learn the skills and information needed to move from a traditional hospital-owned/employed model to a more organized, integrated system of care delivery that manages population health.

For example, participants will build a business case for participation in a value-based payment contract or a plan for implementation of such a program through a rich palette of webinars, in-person educational sessions with national experts, assessment tools to understand gaps in performance and organizational alignment, successful practice case studies and roundtable discussions, networking and project updates with a robust peer-learning network.

Organizations that apply must be a current member of AHA or AMGA and must have an employed physician network/group. Applications due April 8 at 5:30 p.m. PDT. For more information and to apply, visit
