Discount on 2011 Benchmarks in Accountable Care Organizations: <BR>Metrics from Early ACO Adopters

With the January 2012 launch date for the CMS Shared Savings Program on the horizon, early adopters of the accountable care organization (ACO) model aren't waiting to benefit from ACO's built-in business opportunities. Advises Jeffrey Ruggiero, Esq., legal counsel to the Queens County Medical Society ACO: "Physicians really need to be proactive about ACOs; they canít afford to sit on the fence and wait because at the point that thereís absolute clarity, itís probably too late to do anything, and options are evaporating quickly."

2011 Benchmarks in Accountable Care Organizations: Metrics from Early ACO Adopters delivers actionable data from 228 healthcare companies that responded to HIN's February 2011 ACO readiness assessment. The result? A comprehensive snapshot of ACO awareness, participation, administration, targeted populations, payment models and much more from healthcare companies already immersed in the ACO architecture.

15% Discount This 60-page resource provides new market research on current and planned accountable care organizations as well as details on ACO composition and metrics that will be used by ACO early adopters to measure success, quality, efficiency and satisfaction.

PLUS, in an interview with HIN's Melanie Matthews, Greg Mertz, senior project director for Healthcare Strategy Group, suggests ways that providers and payors can profit from the ACO model without waiting for CMS's final rule. He describes the opportunities available on the commercial side, what healthcare organizations can learn from ACOs already in operation, the types of physicians to invite into the ACO, whether EHRs are a requirement of a successful ACOs, what he sees as the most challenging aspect of ACO development, and much more inciteful commentary.
