About Us

As we strive to transform our healthcare system into one that rewards high-quality, low-cost care, it is critically important for policymakers and key stakeholders to hear the voices of independent practice on the front lines of delivery system transformation.

The Partnership to Empower Physician-Led Care (PEPC) was founded to educate stakeholders on the role of independent physicians and practices in leading the transition to risk-based care models, and to advocate for policies that enable and empower them to flourish and succeed as a key part of the healthcare ecosystem.

Our mission is to support value-based care to reduce costs, improve quality, empower patients and physicians, and increase access to care for millions of Americans through a competitive healthcare provider market. We believe that it is impossible to achieve truly value-based care without a robust independent practice community.
