About the Webconference
With the Supreme Court’s ruling on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, many organizations are now focused on the pace and timing of the transition to accountable care, looking to base their next steps on the results and lessons learned from early-adopters.
Many of those early adopters didn't begin with the direct establishment of an ACO, but with the development of a clinical integration organization—a physician-led, performance-focused organization encompassing both employed and independent physicians.
This session focuses on the optimal path to accountable care for your organization, whether through establishing an ACO or a formal clinical integration program with the potential to become an ACO.
Laurie Sprung, PhD, Southwind Executive Vice President, will lead this discussion and will provide a step-by-step guide that begins with assessing your organization's readiness for accountable care.
Laurie will review case study examples from organizations who have undertaken this process with Southwind’s help. For more than three years, Southwind and The Advisory Board Company have been helping organizations begin the transition to accountable care and greatly improve physician-hospital alignment by establishing formal clinical integration programs.
Southwind helps you organize the right physicians into the right structures with the right incentives to navigate the challenging course of health care reform. We provide on-the-ground design and implementation services to support the development of accountable care initiatives from the ground up.
This webconference is open to all hospital and health system executives. For more information, please contact Emily Carmichael at email@example.com or 202-266-6663. Advisory Board members at non-hospital organizations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
