If you're attending HIMSS 2011, make sure you don't miss this: Leading from the Future: A Thought Leadership Event on Accountable Care Organizations
The transformation of health providers into Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), as called for in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, has dramatic implications based upon how CMS may assess and pay providers for their services in the future. Clearly, such a development has profound strategic and structural ramifications for providers. Although the move to an accountable care structure is currently at the choice of the Executive Management team and their Boards, there is a strong push from the Federal government to advance this transformation. And, many organizations have already undertaken the changes necessary to take advantage of the incentive payments associated with the impending CMS program.
Leading from the Future: A Thought Leadership Event on Accountable Care Organizations offers provider executives a unique opportunity to learn about the issues – and IT ramifications – associated with accountable care transformation. By attending this exceptional educational conference, leaders will gain invaluable insight on how IT must be a strategic consideration with critical issues such as ACO qualification criteria, payment methodologies and incentives, and performance measurement and reporting. Additionally, attendees will hear from executives at premiere provider organizations who have made the leap to accountable care. All of this will give provider leaders the robust perspective they need to infuse optimal IT strategy in planning for the future.
