Hospitals Can Mitigate Risk Through CMS' Pathways to Success and a Collaborative ACO
Tim Gronniger, president, Caravan Health, Kansas City, Missouri
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently released the final rule for the 2019 Medicare Shared Savings Program. This session will describe how CMS is continuing to push risk to providers and how hospitals can reduce the risk of the new Medicare ACOs by 75 percent. With policy changes finally locked down, it’s time for hospital leaders to make a plan. The session will highlight the financial benefits of value-based strategies and identify steps hospitals can take now to profitably participate in risk-based payment models such as ACOs.
