The Braintrust of Accountable Care aka AMGA Descends Upon San Diego: Who Knew!

By Gregg A. Masters, MPH

In a chance conversation with my friend, fellow ‘healthtweep’ and patient empowerment co-conspirator Dave DeBronkart, aka @epatientdave, I learned yesterday that AMGA aka @theAMGA was holding their annual meeting in San Diego.

This is perhaps the largest concentration of ‘doers’ in the accountable care movement. Many participated in the landmark Physician Group Practice demonstration project which though reporting mixed results none-the-less added to the pool of knowledge and case studies on advancing accountable care.

More later from this ‘resource rich’ health innovation gathering of thought leaders and demonstrators! Below is a select stream of tweets from the event tagged as #AMGA12 (for most recent digital footprint based on last 50 tweets, click here):
