Care vs. Cost-Savings: Attend the ACO Panel at Our General Membership Meeting
Wednesday, February 8 - Save the Date!
Resource Reception, 5:00 - 7:00 PM
Dinner and Panel on ACO Accountability, 7:00 PM
Bethesda Marriott at Pooks Hill
Who holds an Accountable Care Organization Accountable? All physician members are invited to join us for a discussion of ACOs in our area. Have ACO's been a successful strategy to control cost through the provision of more efficient and effective care? Who's holding ACO's accountable? CMS? Physicians? Patients? What's their future under a new Administration?
Join us to hear our guest speaker, Terri L. Postma, M.D., Medical Officer of CMS's Performance-Based Policy Group, share what grade CMS would give ACO's in the first generation, and to discuss what the future holds for ACO's as they assume greater risk for the care they provide.
A panel discussion will follow with representatives of ACO's active in the Montgomery County market area to present information about their specific performance results and their future operational strategies. To date, representatives from Aledade, Collaborative Health, Mid-Atlantic and Privia ACOs have been invited.
