Register today for this free webinar being held on July 27 at 2:00 EDT.
Speakers: Phil Dalton and Eric Themm, MDS Consulting

As decisions about the particulars of the health care reform bill continue to forge their way through the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, new healthcare concepts, strategies and business models continue to arise. One such emerging concept is the Accountable Care Organization (“ACO”). The ACO is defined as an organization of health care providers that agrees to be accountable for the quality, cost, and the overall care of Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in the traditional fee-for-service program. ACO’s could transform the delivery and financial components of healthcare. The Webinar will examine the aspects of ACO development, challenges, strategies and the efforts nationally to better manage a patient population’s quality of health end expenses.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will:

  • Receive a brief introduction and overview of Accountable Care Organizations
  • Examine Hospital & Physician Opportunities under ACOs structural components of ACOs.
  • Learn the importance of a solid Primary Care Strategy for ACO Development
  • Understand some of the Operational and Legal Challenges facing ACO Development
  • Ascertain the various requirements involved to function as an ACO
  • Obtain summary case examples of systems with models functioning as ACOs.
  • Consider the potential business opportunities for providers and health plans resulting from new federal regulations being discussed
  • Engage in interactive learning through online question submission, attendee feedback and opportunity for follow up questions.
