Why should someone attend the ACO & Emerging Healthcare Delivery Coalition Fall Live Meeting?
This is a critical time for payment reform and delivery reform in the United States, and in the Medicare program and for Medicare beneficiaries in particular.

We are moving down the road to new payment models—we now have several years of experience with ACOs, growing experience with other types of payment reforms, like bundled episode payments. They are showing some signs of promising results, particularly in improving quality. But we definitely aren't there yet, in terms of healthcare providers around the country knowing the things that they can do right now to have the biggest impact on improving outcomes for their patients, and the biggest impact on getting overall costs down.

And meetings like this one are critical for sharing ideas, for keeping up to date with payment reforms, for figuring out how to succeed in this very challenging world of value-based payment and higher expectations about high-value healthcare delivery.
