Ama Policy

Effectiveness of Risk Assessment Models in Representing Healthcare Resources Expended for Infants and Children H-285.903

Risk—Physicians Taking

Our AMA will: (1) support risk modeling that appropriately represents care that is specific to all age groups including infants, children, and adolescents as unique risk strata; and (2) advocate that health insurance organizations transparently publish their risk adjustment models so that clinicians can more effectively document care that reflects patient risk and so that clinicians can assess whether the risk adjustment model appropriately defines the risk of their patients.
