This report, sponsored by the American Medical Association (AMA), describes how alternative payment models (APMs) affect physicians, physicians' practices, and hospital systems in the United States and also provides updated data to the original 2014 study.

Alternative payment models cause administrative burdens that take doctors away from patient care. Slowing the rate of change and simplifying payment models could help them focus on patients. And getting physicians' input on the design of new payment methods might improve their engagement.

States’ Actions to Expand Telemedicine Access During COVID-19 | Commonwealth Fund

To encourage greater use of telemedicine during the COVID-19 pandemic, states took action to enhance private insurance coverage of telemedicine. As temporary orders and voluntary insurer efforts end, policymakers are considering how best to regulate telemedicine post-pandemic.

During the pandemic, 22 states changed telemedicine policies. Long-term data on how they affect access, cost, and care quality may help shape future policies.
