Patient / Public:Healthcare Prof:
Donald Berwick, MD, MPP, the departing CMS Administrator, brought his deep expertise and vision for health care improvement to all he did at CMS. We thank him for his leadership there, in particular the role he played in helping shape the Medicare Shared Savings Program, Accountable Care Organizations regulatory framework. Dr. Berwick has been a friend to medical groups and the high standards of care which they practice and espouse. While Dr. Berwick will be leaving the Federal health care stage, he will not be exiting from the arena and we wish him well.
The American Medical Group Association represents medical groups, including some of the nation’s largest, most prestigious medical practices, independent practice associations, and integrated healthcare delivery systems.

More than 117,000 physicians practice in AMGA member organizations, providing healthcare services for 110 million patients in 49 states (nearly one in three Americans). Headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, AMGA is the strategic partner for these organizations, providing a comprehensive package of benefits, including political advocacy, educational and networking programs, publications, benchmarking data services, and financial and operations assistance.
