The accountable care organization (ACO) — a network of primary care physicians, one
or more hospitals and subspecialists that provide patient-centered care — is receiving
increasing attention as healthcare reform unfolds.

This Wednesday, Dr. Craig Samitt, MBA, president and CEO of Dean Health System,
will share how Dean, where leveraging high-value, high-quality healthcare is a hallmark,
has implemented a series of best practices to create an ACO that provides a high-value
patient-centered care experience.

Dr. Samitt will describe this series of business best practices, including effective
recruiting, incentives and performance management to provide high quality care during
the 45-minute webinar, Meet the Medical Home Neighbor: Accountable Care
Organizations
at 1:30 pm Eastern.

Not only do ACOs complement the medical home model, but they are inextricably linked,
says Dr. Samitt. Listen online as Dr. Samitt in a pre-conference session discusses how
ACOs complement the medical home model, the pros and cons of mandatory and voluntary
ACOs and creating reimbursement strategies for ACOs.
