As healthcare shifts its focus to improved care, healthier populations and reduced costs, accountable care organizations (ACOs) stand to make a lasting, positive impact on the United States healthcare system and healthcare organizations’ bottom lines, according to a new infographic by Greenway Health.

Participation in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) has helped ACOs earn shared savings—but what percentage of savings can you earn and what risk do you assume for participating? The infographic examines the features of each track of the MSSP program, including the Next Generation ACO Model.

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 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, 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.
