The Petrie-Flom Center collaborates with the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC) on the Project on Advanced Care and Health Policy.
Last week, a panel of experts convened by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recommended approval of C-TAC’s “Advanced Care Model”, designed to improve quality and care for individuals with serious and advanced illness. The expert panel, known as the Physician-Focused Payment Model Advisory Committee or PTAC, was created by MACRA.
“With 10,000 Baby Boomers becoming eligible for Medicare every day, many of whom have or will have serious or advanced illness, we must find a way to provide quality care to this population,” said Tom Koutsoumpas, Co-Founder and Co-Chair of C-TAC, during his opening remarks. “C-TAC is honored to stand at the forefront of this exciting opportunity to transform the healthcare system. This is the first step in changing how we care for people most in need in this country.”
