It’s no secret that Caravan Health’s results show that ACOs present the greatest pathway to operational and financial success.

But building a thriving population health program doesn’t happen solely by joining an ACO. Faced with barriers to change, many hospital leaders are struggling to implement the population health initiatives needed to succeed under an ACO model. While ACOs continue to grow, many will never get off the launch pad.

Unlike the typical hospital-led ACO, Caravan’s ACO partners have achieved single-year savings of more than $26 million and more than 10 times the national average for savings among new ACOs. Our model shows that with the right tools and commitment, organizations can quickly create a profitable and sustainable health system.

Through our experience, we’ve identified six imperatives for ACO success:

  1. Ease Physician Burden by Empowering Population Health Nurses    
  2. Rigorously and Transparently Track Performance
  3. Enhance Primary Care
  4. Leverage Big Data
  5. Engage All Levels of the Organization
  6. Collaborate to Form ACOs with More Than 100,000 Lives

 

By implementing these imperatives, health systems can drive the change needed for success. We’ve detailed these solutions, that have helped more than 14,000 clinicians improve quality of care and lower costs, in our ACO Success Guide.
