Since the first ACOs were established in 2012, there has been a persistent question of whether the population health management and wellness measures employed by ACOs will result in fewer inpatient stays and lower hospital revenue. Can ACO participation be worth the financial risk for inpatient hospitals?
Last week, Caravan Health received confirmation from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) about the superior performance of our partners in Accountable Care as measured by the 2017 Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) scores.
Caravan Health is pleased to announce that early bird registration is now open for the third annual Caravan Health Accountable Care Symposium. The leading event in population health returns to Phoenix, Arizona on December 5 and 6, 2018 at the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa.
The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPac) released its biannual report summarizing policy issues and changes to be considered for the Medicare program, punctuated with a surprisingly strong endorsement of Accountable Care Organizations in Medicare.
The third annual event returns to Phoenix, Arizona on December 5 and 6 to discuss the biggest trends and innovations in population health.
For the first time, we heard from Colleen Norris, an actuary who analyzed the ACO data, as well as Tim Putnam, a hospital CEO with long experience in the Caravan Health collaborative ACO model, and Stephen Shortell, a UC Berkeley Dean Emeritus who has conducted research on ACO leadership.
Recent analysis shows that ACOs with more covered lives are better positioned to receive Medicare shared savings for participating providers. Watch this presentation to hear from a panel of industry experts on the groundbreaking model of Collaborative ACOs.
Based on its experience helping physicians and hospitals create and manage Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), Caravan Health just published an analysis showing how small ACOs are cursed by variation in spending caused by statistical noise rather than their own performance. There is a formula to success under this model of value-based payment.
Caravan Health leads the market in guiding health providers as they form and manage Accountable Care Organizations. We have seen ACOs succeed and we have seen them struggle and we have seen that some ACOs – despite their best efforts – fail to realize savings through better care management and prevention.
