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.
If your agency handles chronic care patients, population health management in action will optimize your value-based arrangements and lower the chance of reduced reimbursements or re-hospitalizations. You can harness the power of population health management by using information technology to collect and analyze patient data, which can then be used to create an action plan.
So, if your agency is looking for improved clinical and financial outcomes, attend the Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo in October where you can:
- Learn how to create a population health management strategy
- Hear about effective case management methods
- Discuss the role of post-acute care organizations in managing chronic care patients across the continuum
- Identify payment models including Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), Medicare Advantage, Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) and more
- Gain an understanding of care management and how a well-developed plan can lead to better patient outcomes and cost savings
We hope to see you in Long Beach!
