New care delivery models including ACOs and PCMH continue to proliferate across the country spurred by private payers interest in coordinated care management and the introduction of the Medicare Shared Savings Program introduced by the Patient Protection and the Affordable Care Act.
Over the past 12 months CMS has announced 32 Pioneer ACOs and more recently the first Medicare ACOs. This activity has been mirrored by commercial health insurers revealing extensive plans for ACO development, groups such as Aetna, United Health group and Blue Cross Blue Shield continuing to pursue performance based contracts with providers across the country.
With the uncertainty surrounding the Supreme Court decision now behind us the continued expansion of the Commercial and Medicare ACO market continues to accelerate.
Accountable Care IT Readiness
Clinical, Business and IT leaders from provider organizations across the country are now mobilizing their organizations to participate in ACOs and/or seeking to be effective partners for payers in value-based purchasing programs.
Building on the success of the much anticipated and influential Accountable Care and HIT Strategies in Miami earlier in the year, the fall summit will brings together ACOs, Health Systems, Medical Groups and Payers from across the country to discuss the practical steps that need to be taken to implement the clinical, financial and administrative systems required to succeed in an an Accountable Care setting.
What You Can Expect
At the summit, policymakers and leading HIT strategists will provide critical insights into the pathways that any organization will need to take to effectively build an information powered health system amongst ACO Participants to align clinical pathways and incentive models and better understand where the opportunities lie to really inflect patient care and the associated costs of care delivery.
