Accountable Care Organizations: Implications for Reimbursement, How it Can Be Done, & What it Might Look Like in the Capital Region

Tuesday, February 1, 2011
7:15 a.m.** - 9:45 a.m.
University at Albany, School of Public Health
George Education Center Auditorium
One University Place, Rensselaer, NY
** Presentations will begin at 7:45 a.m.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is expected to release specific regulations on how different health care delivery organizations can reorganize themselves as accountable care organizations (ACO) to help restructure payment reform and provide coordinated care with implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).  What will be the challenges, opportunities, and impact of establishing ACOs in the Capital Region? 

This expanded breakfast program will assess the ACO concept critically from several different perspectives:  as an approach to payment reform that restructures financial incentives and transforms provider relationships; in the context of existing models of care coordination already being implemented in the Capital Region community for specific populations such as older adults; and as a stable, long-term model of care that will bring added value to the Capital Region health care community and its patients.
