This session will focus on the topic of participating in an ACO and how hospitals and clinics are harnessing the power of data analytics to chart their course to improve the health of the populations they serve. The session will demonstrate how hospitals and clinics participating in ACOs have access to Medicare claims data that lets them think like payers.
