Goal 2 - Key incentives and supports for physicians are aligned with the delivery of care and toward overall system objectives of timely access for patients to quality care.

Goal 3 - Physicians and the AMA, in partnership with patients, play a leadership role in advocating and promoting a system characterized by Patients First®.
