AGA Develops Practice Portfolio to Help GIs Thrive

May 18, 2016

If you're planning to attend DDW 2016, make sure to pick up the portfolio at the AGA Booth.

To flourish in the rapidly changing world of health care and reimbursements, gastroenterologists must demonstrate high-value care. As part of the Roadmap to the Future of GI, AGA has published a Practice Portfolio of tools and resources to help you to understand and prepare for changes in reimbursement and health-care delivery, while maintaining a high-quality practice.

The Practice Portfolio will help you: 

  • Understand the episode payment framework for GERD to coordinate predetermined, expected costs of a grouping, or “bundle,” of related health-care services with your payors. The model aims to reward you for identifying efficiency gains, effectively coordinating patient care and improving the quality of care provided. 
  • Use the GERD episode pathway to help develop your payment framework. 
  • Prepare for 2016 quality reporting by reviewing and understanding the AGA Qualified Clinical Data Registry performance measures.
  • Ensure you are practicing evidence-based care by following our clinical decision support tools.

Going to Digestive Disease Week® (DDW)? Stop by the AGA Booth (#3243) to pick up the AGA Practice Portfolio.
