Caravan Health Founder Lynn Barr and Neal Shah, a shareholder in Polsinelli’s health care law practice, recently presented a webinar explaining the details about two newly released proposed rules. These highly anticipated rules propose exceptions to the Physician Self-Referral Law (Stark Law) and safe harbors for the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) that would make it easier for providers to participate in value-based health care arrangements.
It’s that time of year when we plan our annual accountable care symposium. At this not-to-be-missed event, you can learn the latest in value-based payment, including tips from experts, and keep up to date on what’s happening nationally in health care.
It’s no secret that Medicare providers will have to transition from fee-for-service to fee-for-value in the next few years in order to sustain their profits. The financial downside to remaining in fee-for-service will soon exceed the risks of transitioning to alternative payment systems.
In a Caravan Health collaborative ACO, a group of unrelated health systems come together to reach the scale necessary not just to participate, but to thrive in accountable care. In the last year, Caravan Health has taken the natural next step and combined lives to form even larger ACOs, including the largest Shared Savings Program ACO in the country with more than 200,000 attributed lives.
Medicare reimbursement rules are requiring physicians to move from fee-for-service to fee-for-value. Providers may be left wondering how to succeed in value-based payment. Caravan Health is here to explain the changing rules, the ever more complex requirements for health care providers, and the best path forward for success.
Caravan Health President Tim Gronniger and Policy Officer LeeAnn Hastings led a webinar to go over the details of the newly published final Medicare Shared Savings Program regulation.
Last week’s Accountable Care Symposium was a celebration of a successful year, a chance to hear about what is coming in 2019, and an opportunity to network with colleagues old and new. Here are just a few highlights from the two-day event.
The Caravan Health Accountable Care Symposium brings together community hospital leaders, experts from government and industry, clinical staff, and others to share their visions, strategies, and experiences in executing value-based payment models.
Providers must realign clinical workflows as well as revenue models, and physician leaders must convince their peers that these changes will pay off in the long run.
