Generating Population Health Revenue

Caravan Health's ACOs saved more than $26 million in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and achieved higher than average quality scores and quality reporting scores in 2016, according to newly released Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) data on the MSSP program. The ACOs' quality scores and quality reporting scores have them well-positioned under CMS' Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) as an additional potential physician practice revenue stream.

During Generating Population Health Revenue: ACO Best Practices for Medicare Shared Savings and MIPS Success, a 45-minute webinar now available for download, Tim Gronniger, senior vice president of development and strategy, Caravan Health, shares the key focus areas for its ACOs to achieve these results while building a sustainable healthcare delivery model in the year ahead and beyond.
