Commercial ACOs may provide a greater opportunity over Medicare ACOs for health plans and health systems as there is more creativity on the commercial side if you have strong partnerships, says Greg Mertz, senior project director with the Healthcare Strategy Group.

With CMS’ long-awaited proposed rule governing the Medicare Shared Savings (ACO) program now on the table, healthcare organizations must begin to analyze the opportunities that exist with the Medicare program as well as take advantage of the commercial ACO opportunity. Join us on April 21st for an assessment of both the commercial and Medicare ACO market opportunities.

Our panelist, Greg Mertz has been identified as a thought leader on the impact of healthcare reform proposals on hospital-physician relationships, specifically on the ACO model of care. He has helped community and academic medical centers in assessing performance issues, developing strategies to improve organizational performance, and has addressed the need to enhance bottom line results through organizational redesign.

Mertz will review these and other key questions:

  • What are the opportunities in public sector ACOs vs. commercial models?
  • Does an ACO make sense for everyone?
  • How you can get from where you are to where you need to be: Readiness Assessments?
  • What are the barriers to success?
  • What are the key highlights of the proposed CMS Medicare Shared Savings Rule and what challenges does it present?

Following the speaker presentation, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
