Reporting from the front lines: implementing Oregon's alternative payment methodology in federally qualified health centers.
Alternative payment models have been proposed as a way to facilitate patient-centered medical home model implementation, yet little is known about how payment reform translates into changes in care delivery. This study conducted site visits, observed operations, and conducted interviews within 3 Federally Qualified Health Center organizations. They identified several care delivery changes during the early stages of implementation, as well as challenges associated with this new model of payment.

Occupational therapy and management of multiple chronic conditions in the context of health care reform.
One in four individuals living in the United States has multiple chronic conditions (MCCs), and the already high prevalence of MCCs continues to grow. Occupational therapy is uniquely positioned to contribute to more efficient, effective, client-centered management of care. By integrating findings from the literature with current policy and practice, the authors aim to highlight the potential role for occupational therapy in managing MCCs within the evolving health care system.
