NAACOS Fall 2018 Conference

Washington, DCOctober 3-5

Providing a road map for accountable care organizations (ACOs) trying to navigate the path toward value-based care, the National Association of ACOs (NAACOS) has announced the agenda for its fall conference, held October 3-5 in Washington, DC. The conference provides stakeholders an opportunity to network with over 650 fellow ACO stakeholders and identify best practices for moving forward.

The conference will offer approximately 12.25 continuing education credits for physicians, nurses, and healthcare executives. Highlights of the conference include:

Evaluating the Private Payer ACO Landscape

Moderated by Katherine Schneider, Delaware Valley ACO and NAACOS Board Chair, the session will include panelists Julian Harris of Cigna and Danielle Lloyd of America’s Health Insurance Plans. Getting insight from private payers, the session will look at how these stakeholders are collaborating with ACOs to create new ACO opportunities in the commercial market. Panelists will also go over variability across local markets and commercial payers and the related opportunities and challenges this presents for ACOs.

Open Mic With CMS

This town hall format is a perennial favorite among NAACOS conference attendees because it allows ACO executives an excellent opportunity to ask questions and receive answers directly from the leaders of the CMS Performance-Based Payment Policy Group and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.
