Track 3 – Accountable Care Organizations and Beyond: Moving Toward Value-Based Healthcare
The Affordable Care Act directed CMS to establish a shared savings program to facilitate coordination and cooperation among providers to improve the quality of care for Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries and reduce unnecessary costs. CMS recently released a draft of a new program under Medicare that will establish an entity and will create incentives for health care providers to work together to treat an individual patient across care settings – including doctor’s offices, hospitals, and long-term care facilities: an Accountable Care Organization. Accountable Care Organizations have the potential to have a profound impact on the delivery of healthcare as it shifts the government’s reimbursement model from Fee for Service to one based on quality and efficiency. Learn more about the new Medicare ACO model and integration of health IT to support patient-centered care.
