Caravan Health’s Tim Gronniger on Boosting ACO Participation

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Tim Gronniger, the CEO of Caravan Health, about what to look for as accountable care organizations (ACOs) and policy makers try to encourage more providers to join value-based care arrangements.

The “muscles” that were created in value-based care programs in the years before the pandemic have been helpful to accountable care organizations (ACOs) in dealing with the turmoil in health care delivery, according to our guest on this week’s Managed Care Cast.

Tim Gronniger, MPP, MHSA, the CEO of Caravan Health, discusses what may come next (or ideally might come next) as ACOs move forward as the United States adjusts to an endemic phase of COVID-19. We discuss financing and policy and what is needed to achieve CMS’ goal of furthering the shift to ACOs by 2030.

Gronniger, former chief of staff and director of Delivery System Reform at CMS in the Obama administration, also discusses the company’s recent acquisition by Signify Health.
