Illinois’ Accountable Care Entities (ACE): Risk and Performance Management for Medicaid ACOs
The rollout of health care reform legislation and Federal innovation grants have set the stage for new approaches to meeting the triple aim of increasing quality of care, lowering costs, and improving population health outcomes for Medicaid populations in some states. These approaches are key to improving patient outcomes and decreasing health care costs nationally. One approach of the health care reform legislation to improve care coordination, ensure quality and safety, and reduce waste is the Accountable Care Organization (ACO). ACOs are provider-based organizations that assume responsibility and accountability for the quality, cost, and comprehensive care of a defined population of patients across the continuum of care. Illinois has embarked on a Medicaid innovation with Accountable Care Entities ACE organizations which hope to fulfill this aim. The panel will explore the assessment of population risk stratification, quality measurements, reporting, care coordination, patient engagement and lessons learned through the use of technology for sharing information.
