Webinar: Successful ACOs - A Strong Foundation of Primary Care?

This webinar brings together thought leaders to examine how and when Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) with a strong foundation of primary care spend less and achieve better results for patients. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about recent complementary research from Harvard Medical School and the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative/Graham Center that leverages data from the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). Aledade will provide an industry perspective on these findings, sharing their experience leveraging primary care tools in ACOs.

ACOs: What is all the noise about?

There has been much press and even more debate in policy circles about how to qualify organizations to act as ACOs and how to evaluate their performance.   What do ACOs say they can offer employers and their employees?  Why should employers learn about ACOs and how can employers become educated ACO consumers?   Dana Safran, co-chair of the PCPCC Center for Accountable Care and Emma Hoo, (Director of Value-Based Purchasing) at the Pacific Business Group on Health will address these questions and more on The Center for Employer Engagement July 13th Webinar.  Please mark your calendar and plan
