Accountable Care


The future of medicine will be creating partnerships with other providers and other healthcare organizations that are like-minded and looking to enter into value-based modes of care to create networks taht aren't narrow but are coordinated and high performing, said Farzad Mostashari, MD, former National Coordinator of Health Information Technology and co-founder and chief executive officer of Aledade.
The Medicare Shared Savings Program is the perfect way for primary care physicians to get involved with alternative payments as Medicare moves to replace fee-for-service, explained Hymin Zucker, MD, chief medical officer of the Triple Aim Development Group.
The American healthcare system is finally moving away from fee-for-service toward bundled payments, but this transition will only be successful if we shift risk to the physicians.
The government is leading the charge toward value-based care and no matter how slowly, everyone else will follow, said Jacque Sokolov, MD, chairman and CEO of SSB Solutions, during the opening keynote presentation at the Fall Managed Care Forum 2015.
When accountable care organizations first started forming, the country thought it would be easier than it has been, but finding the right partner is crucial, said Pam Halvorson, regional vice president of clinic operations with Trinity Pioneer ACO.
