Product Description

The one thing that is clear: CMS is looking at "collaboration" as a way to save Medicare dollars.

The PPACA included several new care delivery models designed to increase provider collaboration and intended to reduce costs. Of these models, ACOs are receiving the most attention, but the ACO model is not the only model in the PPACA. Furthermore, the ACO model is changing as providers become more aware of CMS intent.

This collaboration will leave unprepared providers on the outside of these new models.

Providers that are outside of these models will find it harder and harder to obtain referrals. Providers wishing to be included need to understand the goals of these models, how they might work, how home health fits into these models and what they need to do to be attractive partners to entities looking to establish an ACO or similar entity.

Join Robert W. Markette Jr. for this 60-minute audio event for an up-close look at ACOs and Home Health.

  • ACO’s and new care delivery models - what’s in the PPACA
