Beating your hospital's Financial benchmarks

Caravan Health helps hospitals improve financial benchmark performance by implementing a high-performance population health model.  

Hospitals are often concerned about the financial changes that could come with ACO participation. Our experience shows that that the ACO model is an ideal business model for hospitals willing to invest their networks, delivering near-term returns even apart from shared savings. Driven by increased wellness utilization and market share, Caravan Health partners thrive.

We also have found the key to reliably getting shared savings: banding together with other organizations into a Collaborative ACO with at least 100,000 lives. Our expertise in this proven model reveals opportunities for small and mid-sized hospitals to achieve the benefits of scale while maintaining independence by working in Collaborative ACOs that mitigate risk. 

At Caravan Health, we benchmark our ACOs against each other and the rest of the country. That discipline drives new models of care delivery that increases outpatient revenues and keeps patients in your network, improving their care experience and your bottom line.

95% Confidence in Achieving Shared Savings  

ACO model for financial results

Dollars per patient refers to how much an ACO must save in order to be 95% confident the ACO will achieve shared savings 
The June 2018 MedPAC report, titled Report to the Congress: Medicare and the Health Care Delivery System, supports the notion that hospital revenue can withstand the cost and care management required for successful ACO participation. MedPAC reviewed several studies which showed that, despite concerns about reduced inpatient admissions, most ACO savings result from a reduction in post-acute care rather than reduced inpatient admissions. This is especially important as more and more ACOs are taking on both upside and downside risk.
