The training will provide an overview of a case study of twenty-three ACOs which initiated participation in the MSSP Track 1 ACO program that have showed an average of a 7% overall gain in net revenue. The training will include an overview of ACOs and shared savings, and an overview of MACRA, QPP, and MIPs specific to community hospitals. The roles of CFOs and Finance staff in implementing APMs, and MSSP Track 1 ACOs in particular, and their role in ACO operations and fiscal measure reporting will be reviewed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the basics of ACOs and Shared Savings
  • Discuss MACRA, QPP and MIPS and implications for hospital finances, including considerations of risk for various Alternative Payment Models and Advanced Alternative Payment Models;
  • Discuss a case study of 23 ACOs that included 164 community hospitals and an analysis of cost report data, and review the role of CFOs and Finance staff in implementing APMs, and in operating including financial measure reporting.

Take Away:  

MACRA is here to stay and the march toward value based payment models continues. Health care hospitals, clinics, and other organizations need to plan now to start the transition from fee-for service. Medicare Shared Savings Program Track 1 ACOs provide a great way for organizations to gain financial bonuses and avoid risk. CFOs and finance staff can start now to help their organizations move forward in alternative payment models.
