Sponsored by: Advanced Care Coordination: Bridging the Gap Between Appropriate Levels of Care and Care Plan Adherence for ACO Attributed Lives

Winding down its three-year Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP), UT Southwestern Accountable Care Network (UTSACN) credits its explosive growth in attributed lives and provider participation and achievement of shared savings in both 2014 and 2015 to its advanced care coordination program. During Advanced Care Coordination: Bridging the Gap Between Appropriate Levels of Care and Care Plan Adherence for ACO Attributed Lives, a September 27, 2016 webinar, Cathy Bryan, director, care coordination at UT Southwestern, will share how UTSACN's care coordination model manages utilization while bridging the gap from where patients are to where they need to be for care plan adherence. Ms. Bryan will also highlight UTSACN's Home Health Evaluation Program, which saved the health system $6 million in its first quarter alone. Click here to register or obtain more information.
