AAMC Mailing Lists

AAMC mailing lists are available for sharing valuable information and resources with our member institutions and constituents.

About GFP

The Group on Faculty Practice (GFP) is composed of both physicians and executive practice plan leaders. Members can be appointed to the GFP one of two ways: (1) by the medical school dean or (2) by the hospital or health system senior executive to whom the practice plan leadership has a direct reporting relationship.

Medical school deans or hospital/health system senior executives may appoint up to four GFP representatives: at least one physician leader involved in governance/leadership of the faculty practice plan; and one senior executive, non-physician leader from the practice plan's administrative operation. Two additional appointments (both physician and non-physician) can be made to the GFP.

Member Benefits

Access to Other Leaders in the Academic Medicine Community

The AAMC recognizes that the clinical mission is critical and has taken steps to bring together leaders of practice plans and other institutional leaders to support their efforts, and to find ways to transform their institutions to meet the challenges of providing health care as delivery and payment systems are changing. The GFP Annual Symposium is held in conjunction with the Council of Teaching Hospitals (COTH), Council of Deans (COD) and Chief Medical Officers Group (CMOG) providing unique opportunities for networking and to explore issues of mutual concern.

Advocacy

On both the legislative and regulatory side, AAMC staff work to ensure that the voice of academic medicine is heard in Washington. Staff also keeps members updated about major legislative and regulatory initiatives through its weekly newsletter, Washington Highlights. In addition, members receive access to AAMC listserves that allow for important news and updates to be received directly. Webinars are also regularly held to inform and engage members in the latest regulatory items that affect faculty practice plans.

Physician Payment and Quality Reporting

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) seeks to transform how it reimburses providers to encourage high-value healthcare. Programs such as the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) were created to encourage physicians to capture and report defined clinical quality measures. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) introduced additional programs, such as the Value Modifier (VM), which rewards physicians for providing quality and efficient healthcare services and penalized for poor performance. Physician payment will continue to evolve to encourage high quality, patient-centered care that meets the needs of a more integrated U.S. health care system.

Please visit the Patient Care section of the AAMC website for resources on physician payment and quality including AAMC webinars, analyses, presentations, and comment letters.

Executive Compensation Survey

The AAMC GFP Executive Compensation Survey assists faculty practice plans with understanding compensation and job descriptions for various senior executives employed by practice plans. The AAMC provides a copy of the report to respondents and other AAMC constituents.

Faculty Practice Solutions Center (FPSC)

The Vizient-AAMC Faculty Practice Solutions Center (FPSC) was created to help alleviate the burdensome nature of duplicative data collection and survey activities. It was designed to be a comprehensive resource for academic practice management benchmarking by having the best features of organizations' historical reporting initiatives and by expanding activity to meet critical gaps in the academic practice community's management data needs. FPSC includes data in the areas of physician clinical productivity, departmental financial and operational management, and the practice plan billing office.

The Hyatt Regency Chicago hosted nearly 250 attendees at the 2015 FPSC Annual Conference. This year's conference focused on practice, revenue cycle, and quality and efficient management. The conference was filled with many professional and pre-conference networking activities.

Join your AMC physician practice peers at the Vizient-AAMC Faculty Practice Solutions Center (FPSC) Annual Conference 2016, June 15-17 at the InterContinental Hotel in downtown Chicago!

This year’s meeting theme explores the concept of “Doing Well by Doing Good” as it pertains to organizations facing the challenge of optimizing performance in a healthcare world still dominated by volume-based reimbursement while simultaneously positioning themselves for success in a value-based future state environment. Through a series of thought-provoking keynotes, focus track sessions, roundtable discussions, and networking opportunities, attendees will have the opportunity to learn and discuss strategies for transforming clinical practice to achieve high-value and high-quality healthcare. 

Additional Conference information, including registration, can be found here

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago this June! Please contact Will Dardani for more information on meeting programming.

AAMC or Vizient membership is a sufficient criterion for participation; however, the FPSC is a fee-for-service tool. To learn more about it, or to become a subscriber, please visit www.facultypractice.org.
