Purpose: In 2011, the AMDA Public Policy Committee formed the Corporate Practice of Medicine (CPOM) Workgroup. The CPOM Workgroup was charged with a) reviewing and evaluating the concept of the CPOM Doctrine, b) investigating current state legislative actions seeking to remove restrictions on the CPOM in long-term care (LTC) settings, and c) formulating recommendations for further action. This paper summarizes the concept of the CPOM doctrine relative to LTC settings, discusses its relevance to healthcare in the twenty-first century, highlights recent state-level actions, and presents the recommendations of the CPOM Workgroup.
