The Medicare Shared Savings Program and its accountable care organizations (ACOs) stand at the forefront of health reform. These new healthcare partnerships are designed to monitor the quality and efficiency of doctors and hospitals, while seeking to create new quality standards for compensation. Though the original version of the shared savings program released last April met with significant industrywide opposition, more recent revisions released last October have served as beacons of hope, sending healthcare providers around the nation racing to create ACOs.

By participating in this webinar, you will gain a solid understanding of ACOs and learn how they will affect your patients, your community and your business. Every leader should understand the basic tenets of ACOs—don’t miss this important program!

You'll Learn:

  • The technical requirements for forming an ACO
  • The quality and financial measures that form the ACO model and a system for tracking performance measures in 33 areas
  • Why there is increasing pressure to form ACOs and what the resultant changes mean to the future of healthcare in the United States
