21st Century Medicine: A New Calling For Physicians

Health care delivery systems in the United States are undergoing rapid transformation as we move forward into the 21st century. Health plans are preparing to compete for 30 million new members who will be eligible for health insurance in state exchanges beginning January 2014. Hospitals and physicians are continuing their transition to electronic health records and are increasingly exchanging health information with each other. Primary care physicians and community health centers are enhancing access and coordination for their patients by establishing medical homes. Hospitals are improving patient safety and transitions of care when discharging patients from their hospitals. Physicians and hospitals are forming partnerships through accountable care organizations to take responsibility for improving quality and reducing costs. Health care teams and physician extenders are assuming greater responsibility for coordinating and managing health care for patients.

Share Your Story

What is the impact of the Affordable Care Act?

NCAPIP is preparing a report on the impact of the Affordable Care Act. We will deliver this report to state and federal officials in the Spring. It is important that our policymakers understand the impact the ACA is having in our practices and to our patients. We will be gathering your stories. Please take a few minutes to share what the impact has been on your practice.

Join our network and become a part of a powerful voice of AANHPI physician leaders. Become an NCAPIP Supporter or Affiliate and lend us your voice. We have achieved many successes because of supporters and affiliates like you. This year we have been successful in raising awareness of the high prevalence of diabetes within our communities. The AANHPI Diabetes Coalition, that we staff, brought a discussion of Asian BMI to national thought leaders and policymakers. We convened roundtable discussions to develop plans to eliminate health disparities and helped launched the first ever health assessment of the six Pacific Jurisdictions with a special focus on chronic diseases and diabetes.

In 2013, we began a long term partnership with the Association of American Medical Colleges. Over the next few years we are planning to launch workforce programs to support our medical students from underrepresented communities, increase the cultural competence of all future physicians and their capacity and commitment to address health disparities and practice in medically underserved communities, increase and develop AANHPI faculty and researchers engaged in academic medicine and much more.

We remain a strong voice in Washington, DC. Policymakers and the White House turn to us to better understand the impact of health policies and we bring your voice and your stories to them. We are brought to the table for discussions on key issues that impact physicians and the patients they serve. We are trusted leaders that bring a physicians voice to advocate on behalf of and with our patients.
