An Incubator for New Funding Models

SEAMO should act as an incubator for new funding models.

The changing landscape of the current health care environment may well provide opportunities to explore new funding models. Over the next three years, SEAMO will identify and explore other relevant funding models, both domestic and international.

Building on its current expertise as an early adopter of a comprehensive AFP, SEAMO will position itself to act as an incubator for new models of physician compensation, such as outcome or performance-based physician funding (quality component) and team-based funding.

As a test site, SEAMO can provide innovative prototypes for new, integrated models, such as wellness care.
