The shift to value-based care has provided new opportunities to improve behavioral health outcomes. As of January 1, 2017, Medicare provides payment to support Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) services.
Rural health systems struggling to keep their doors open, simply cannot afford to risk their financial resources. With a proven model for helping rural providers thrive in accountable care, Caravan Health wants to make ACOs financially feasible for any provider regardless of location.
As health care providers we know that nothing is more certain than the finite nature of life. Skilled at managing the manifestations of illness and aging, we have undoubtably experienced innumerable victories and losses at the bedside.
When it comes to predicting the general health and wellbeing of a population, a crystal ball isn’t necessary – just the zip code will do.
In this video webinar, Dr. John Findley, ACO Medical Director for Caravan Health, discusses the importance of value-based care and physician recruitment for the future of rural health care.
Today, Caravan Health announced a groundbreaking new Rural Risk-Free Solution to support rural health systems in the Medicare Shared Savings Program. By 2021, all ACOs in Medicare will be in the Pathways to Success Program, which requires paying back certain higher-than-expected Medicare costs during the agreement period.
Health care providers are experiencing a paradigm shift as fee-for-service models are dying out and value-based care becomes the norm. This poses a serious challenge to community health systems and the physicians who are critical to care delivery.
Last week Caravan Health hosted its 4th annual Accountable Care Symposium. Held in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Symposium was the largest attended to date. The two-day event included keynote speakers, breakout sessions, ACO award winners, and ample time for professional networking. Continuing Medical Education credits were available to health care professionals and for the first time, an interactive app was available for attendees and proved to be a successful tool.
Caravan Policy and Compliance Officer LeeAnn Hastings and Policy Analyst Louise Yinug will review the details of Direct Contracting, the new risk-based alternative payment model, which will launch an implementation year in 2021. This interactive event will go over the application timeline, explain how this model interacts with ACOs and other alternative payment models, and discuss how it could affect providers and patients in your community.
