Farzad Mostashari’s company, Aledade, raising $30 million is a good sign that healthcare organizations are going to be spending a lot of time and money figuring out these new ACO and value based reimbursement models. If you’re a healthcare organization that hasn’t started learning about ACOs, here’s a good whitepaper to start.
The whitepaper is titled “Succeeding as an ACO: A 6-Step Guide for Health Care Organizations” and does a lot more than just talk about the 6 steps to building an ACO. It covers ACO in a pretty thorough way. However, the 6 steps are pretty valuable as well:
1. Understand Your Costs
2. Reduce Out-Migration from Your Network
3. Maximize Pay-for-Performance Reimbursement
4. Identify Early Opportunities for Utilization Reductions
5. Support Chronic Care and Disease Management
6. Predict Who Will Develop Issues
Is your healthcare organization ready for the changing reimbursement model and ACOs? If you’re not sure, read through this FREE whitepaper and you’ll have a better idea of what’s happening and how you want to position yourself and your organization in this changing reimbursement environment.
