CMB1 - Accountable Care Best Practices

Aug 28, 2017 8:00am ‐ Aug 28, 2017 9:30am


Regardless of whether it is a clinically integrated network, independent practice association (IPA), or a unique funding relationship developed between a payer and a single health center, being accountable for the quality and cost of the care provided will be the determining factor for future healthcare delivery success. Because there are so many different ways to design a program, there are equally as many strategies to achieve the shared goals. This session will focus on three such strategies, each taking a different approach and focusing on different aspects of accountable care delivery. Presenters will include representatives from: a health center and critical access hospital partnership; a large health center that developed a program focused on cultivating buy-in at every level and focused on patient satisfaction; and a PCA that has developed both an IPA and Medicare Shared Savings Program using external partners.

  • - Understand various approaches for accountable care delivery
  • - Recognize best practices for health centers embarking on the accountable care journey
  • - Determine important considerations and discussions for a health center considering new models of delivery
