If you are just starting your approach to Value-Based Care and considering an ACO or other type of APM, where in the world should you start? While some of the early adopters began by rounding up their usual physicians and filing an ACO application, it’s no longer that easy. Value-based care payments now assume downside risk at some point, so the “get-up-and-go” approach is a harder sell to ACO owners and clinicians. A new script is needed to help organizations create a more strategic path to APMs that will position them successfully with clinicians, patients, and in their markets.
If you are already an ACO and are finding that your savings are weakening under the current algorithm, or are troubled by what’s ahead for Risk, it makes sense to evaluate whether your organization is really set up for future. You might need to look newly at the APM options and make changes. This webinar is also for you.
The “Three Keys to Transitioning to an APM” 3-part webinar series is for you to set up for the higher stakes that APMs now face. The new Value-Based Care market is moving over time to downside risk and population-based payments. The new competitors in the market–backed by venture capital funding or payers who can afford to take on risk and are eager to adopt APMs–are capturing physicians and patients from existing ACOs and health systems. Traditional providers must be more strategic to be successful under these threats.
Parts 1 and 2 of this series helped you decide on the APM type and partnership type, but you’re still have a final step before you can make your initial volley into an ACO or other APM: your clinical network. Part 3 helps you craft the best APM clinical network to make the difference between success and failure.
