Provider participation in accountable care organizations (ACOs) is becoming the new normal. As of January 1, 2016, there were 434 ACOs in the Medicare Shared Savings Program. More than 160,000 providers now participate in an MSSP ACO. These organizations now serve 7.7 million Medicare beneficiaries residing in 49 of the 50 states, according to a new infographic by PYA.

The infographic provides a road map to the MSSP destination of shared savings.

With the nation’s leading accountable care organizations already testing the waters with CMS’ newest value-based reimbursement opportunity, the Next Generation Accountable Care Organization Model, healthcare organizations are evaluating how this new opportunity aligns with their value-based contracting strategy. With a looming application deadline for a 2017 start for the next round of Next Generation ACOs, the clock is ticking. And, with one approved Next Generation ACO, River Health ACO, already departing the program effective February 1st, the “Go-No Go” decision has become even more critical.

During Next Generation ACO: An Organizational Readiness Assessment, a 60-minute webinar on April 5, 2016, now available for replay, Healthcare Strategy Group’s Travis Ansel, senior manager of strategic services, and Walter Hankwitz, senior accountable care advisor, will provide a value-based, risk contract roadmap to determine organizational readiness for participation in the Next Generation ACO Model in particular and in risk-based contracts in general.
