Are you confused by Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and their different payment models? If so, you aren’t alone. ACOs are formed by a group of health care providers, who join together to provide coordinated, high-quality care to their Medicare patients. This model helps patients get the care they need, when they need it while keeping costs down. Then, ACO members can share in those costs savings.
Medicare offers different ACO programs including Medicare Shared Savings, Advance Payment, and Pioneer. To find out which program is best for you, come to the 2017 Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo in Long Beach, California, where you’ll also learn how to review data and measure performance.
