Accountable Care Organizations: The Opportunities and the Risks
60-Minute Audio Program Scheduled for Thursday,
September 30, 2010
from 1:30-2:30 pm EDT
-- September 17,
There are more questions than answers surrounding accountable care
organizations (ACOs) and what an ACO may mean for your organization.
We do know this for certain, as you and your management team work through weighing the merits of creating an ACO, the upside and downside decision involves your competitors and the competitive landscape in your market, market share, your revenues and more threats than a swamp full of alligators.
Hospitals, PHOs, IPAs and other physician organizations, networks or group practices need to make some quick decisions about ACOs.
If your organization is considering creating an ACO, you have no time to lose. ACOs can begin to operate in January 2012. Proposed CMS regulations are due to be published this fall.
Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the health reform law), ACOs are being encouraged as a ‘key delivery system reform’ to be accountable for and to improve the quality, cost and overall care of Medicare beneficiaries.
The competitive landscape and market share strategic issues are foremost for your organization’s decision makers because the new law provides that physicians and other professionals in group practices or networks of practices, hospitals employing physicians/professionals, partnerships or joint ventures between hospitals and physicians and others can become an ACO.
