Sea Girt NJ USA -- September 6, 2013: The keys to success in year one of the Medicare Pioneer ACO program for Monarch HealthCare were engaging vulnerable patients in the ACO and developing a strategy to align non-contracted physicians.

Monarch HealthCare was the third most successful pioneer ACO in terms of cost savings and the second most successful in beating the trend.

During Medicare Pioneer ACO Year One: Lessons from a Top-Performer, a September 18th webinar at 1:30 pm Eastern, Colin LeClair, executive director of ACO for Monarch HealthCare, will share first year lessons from its Medicare Pioneer ACO experience, how it evolved in year two and the impact on its organization's participation in other accountable care organizations.

Learn how Monarch:

  • Demonstrates the value of the ACO to its members;
  • Achieves the highest ACO ROI in terms of quality and cost improvements;
  • Coordinates care for ACO patients who utilize non-contracted physicians;
  • Developed an effective incentive structure for the Annual Medicare Wellness Visit that leads to actionable data;
  • Created a preferred network of cost-effective, high-quality ancillary vendors, including home healthcare, DME and SNFs; and
  • Used the lessons learned through the Medicare Pioneer ACO program to continue to expands its organizational participation in other ACOs and other performance-based contracts.
