Webinar Development of ACOs and Value-Based Arrangements – Market Trends and Key Tenets of Successful Implementation Due to the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2010, healthcare providers have been placed in the position of trying to anticipate and respond to the next legislative ruling and potential market changes. Unfortunately, there are no purely political solutions to improving value in healthcare. As such, providers and payers are left to innovate through transformation and optimization strategies. Providers are working to determine whether a proactive or reactive approach to healthcare reform is best and are seeking to implement strategies that will mitigate short-term challenges while also positioning themselves for long-term success. This session explores the types of value-based arrangements currently being pursued by providers. It also discusses the key tenets of developing a successful value-based strategy, including a framework for conducting the appropriate analytics, and specific recommendations for its successful implementation.
