Shared Savings Power Tools: An ACO-Focused App and Open HIE
12:00pm - 1:00pmWednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Only a minority of the ACOs participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) are meeting the quality performance standards and generating savings above their minimum savings rate. This low success rate may be due in part to the complex data gathering and analytics necessary to meet the MSSP’s compliance and reporting requirements. Leaders from Innovation Care Partners (ICP), a physician-led clinical integration network and ACO, will discuss how they have surpassed expectations and are achieving maximum shared savings by leveraging innovative technology solutions. Their approach addresses major hurdles with reporting, data gathering, and informatics encountered during their first year of participation. ICP made ACO compliance and reporting requirements easier to achieve by leveraging its open health information exchange (HIE) platform and a customized ACO-focused application to seamlessly integrate analytics into reporting and monitoring workflows.
