Dynamic dyads, powerful partnerships and thriving in value-based care

ACC Vice President C. Michael Valentine, MD, sees teams of physicians and administrators as key to managing the changing healthcare industry. Partnerships help them tackle legislative, administrative and financial changes. And while some clinicians complain about MACRA, Valentine says, the legislation aligns government and physicians in switching from volume- to value-based care. ACC has created a MACRA task force and website to inform cardiologists and patients.
