Community hospitals have been buffeted by significant economic pressures in the last decade, including deflated Medicare payment rates, low growth in inpatient utilization, and new payment and delivery models aimed at upending the structure of physician-hospital relationships. MACRA further stresses clinician reimbursements, with a potential payment risk of 5 percent for poor performance in 2018, growing to 9 percent in 2020 and beyond.

A group of New Hampshire hospitals and clinics are riding the tide of change and overcoming challenges to take control of their future – clinically and financially. Moving from a nearly $1 million cost against their benchmark in early 2016 to saving $1.7 million by year-end 2016 to an estimated savings of more than $5 million year-to-date in 2017.

We heard first-hand how the ACO, with the guidance of Caravan Health, gained physician buy-in, equipped and motivated staff to change behavior and attained near-perfect quality scores. This case study takes a closer looks at their strategies, showing step-by-step how these leaders altered the trajectory of their health systems.
