While insurance marketplace aspects of the Affordable Care Act face significant upheaval and uncertainty, value based care initiatives including accountable care organizations continue to evolve and thrive in the commercial and public sectors. Navigating the commercial, Medicare and Medicaid shared risk arrangement environment is critical for provider organizations going forward, as is understanding the perspectives and insights of national ACO thoughtleaders as they look toward the coming year.

The Eighth Annual Accountable Care Web Summit features a 90 minute webinar with three prominent national accountable care speakers from Catalyst Health Network, the National Business Group on Health and Milliman that will share their spectrum of knowledge to help ACO stakeholders position themselves for 2018.

Christopher Crow, MD, MBA, President of Catalyst Health Network and CEO of Stratifi Health will discuss their accountable care initiatives, insights and experiences.  Catalyst Health Network is a clinically integrated network of primary care physicians who have come together to provide high-quality care, helping communities thrive. With 465 primary care providers, 140 office locations, 750,000 patients, and 70 care team members, Catalyst Health Network operates as a non-profit organization improving health, coordinating care, and lowering cost – creating sustainable and predictable value. The network is comprised solely of physician members and managed by StratiFi Health, a physician services and population health organization.

Brian Marcotte, President and CEO of the National Business Group on Health (NBGH) will share their 2017 employer survey data relating to ACOs, notable employer member ACO initiatives, and how in consultation with large employers, national health plans and ACO providers, NBGH has identified several ACO competencies that collectively represent a “tipping point,” at which most employers would likely be interested in partnering with an ACO. To help employers assess opportunities for ACO engagement across their markets, in 2015, the NBGH began convening national employers, health plans and ACO providers to align market expectations for ACOs, helping all players understand what an ACO should be able to deliver based on its journey from inception to high performance. This assessment led to the genesis of the the NBGH ACO Journey Map and ACO Scoring Guide, two public resources that represent a consensus of major stakeholders on what ACOs’ capabilities should be as they transform care for their patients and transition to risk-sharing contracts.

Susan Philip, MPP, Senior Healthcare Management Consultant with Milliman will discuss how evolving payment models that seek to incentivize value and better population health are one of four key drivers fueling telehealth growth in terms of acceptance and adoption. The potential impact on telehealth will be examined for payment models including the Next Generation Accountable Care Organization (ACO) initiative; Medicare Advantage Value-Based Insurance Design (VBID) Model; selected State Medicaid alternative payment models; and various Commercial ACO models.

The event also includes two on-demand sessions providing research findings, with Rutger's Derek DeLia, Ph.D. presenting his research key findings, insights and implications in his presentation: New Jersey Case Study - The NJ Medicaid ACO Demonstration; and Milliman's Jill Herbold and Anders Larson discussing their research and insights on SNF performance metrics in their presentation: SNF Performance for Medicare Populations: Measuring and Benchmarking SNF Performance Metrics for ACOs and MA Plans.

Join us for the Eighth Annual Accountable Care Web Summit on Thursday, November 16, 2017, and participate in the live national webinar, additional on-demand faculty sessions, ACO e-poll and more, featuring national experts providing key insights, trends, strategies, actionable intelligence and more - plus receive the current issue of Accountable Care News.
