Accountable Care


When Providence-Swedish Health Alliance signed with Boeing to create a unique employer-sponsored accountable care organization, figuring out the logistics of the model took some time, according to Joseph Gifford, MD, CEO of Providence-Swedish Health Alliance.
Leah Binder, MA, MGA, president and chief executive officer of The Leapfrog Group, encourages everyone to attend The American Journal of Managed Care’s ACO and Emerging Healthcare Coalition Fall live meeting, which will be held October 15-16 in Palm Harbor, Florida.
The accountable care organization (ACO) programs—the Pioneer, Shared Savings, and Next Generation models—and how they relate to provider risk is addressed by panel members Francois de Brantes, MS, MBA; Ateev Mehrotra, MD, MPH; and Arthur Vercillo, MD, FACS, during this 12th session of the Healthcare Reform Stakeholder Summit. Risk factors for various models are also discussed.
Accountable care organizations can play a key role in building a Culture of Health in which every person in America can have the healthiest life possible.
In an ACO, coordination of care is the name of the game, and this is highly dependent on the information technology system, according to Francois de Brantes, MS, MBA; Ateev Mehrotra, MD, MPH; and Arthur Vercillo, MD, FACS. In the 10th segment of the Healthcare Reform Stakeholders Summit, Spring 2015 series, they discuss how patients are directed through the ACO system and the HIT system challenges to improving care efficiency.
