ACO Watch: A Mid Week Review

We provide a weekly round-up of Accountable Care Organization (ACO) activities, in the run-up to the January 2012 'go live' date. For example, in November alone we witnessed: (1) the AMA Interim Meeting of House of Delegates publishing 'New Principles for ACOs', see: McDermott, Will & Emery summary here: http://bit.ly/hHryR1, (2) the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMMS) issued a request for information on ACO's, see: http://bit.ly/elTaNs, and (3) we reached the NCQA's deadline for comment submission, see: http://bit.ly/ddJFOW Our special guest for the inaugural program is J. Peter Rich, Esq., of McDermott, Will & Emery, LLP. Rich is a partner in the law firm of McDermott Will & Emery (MWE) LLP, and is based in the Firm’s Los Angeles office. Rich co-chairs MWE’s 'Insurance/Payors Affinity Group'.

ACO Watch: A Mid Week Review

On the Tuesday December 7th 2010 program at 10AM Pacific and 1PM Eastern, my guest commentator is Kent Bottles, MD, aka @kentbottles on Twitter. Dr. Bottles is a compelling keynote speaker who grabs and holds the attention of his audience the moment he takes the podium. He has vast knowledge of healthcare systems, technology, change through conflict, and the future of healthcare. His ability to convey complex information in down-to-earth terms — combined with mind-opening delivery — promotes new ideas and attitudes while energizing listeners and facilitating transformation and growth. Dr. Bottles will discuss the role of physician leadership, and the 'culture of collaboration' imperative amidst a soon-to-be very competitive Accountable Care Organization (ACO) market.

ACO Watch: A Mid-Week Review

On the Wednesday, December 15th 2010 program at 11AM Pacific and 2PM Eastern, my guest commentator is L. Gordon Moore, MD, aka @lgordonmooremd on Twitter. Dr. Moore is a medical practice innovator, status quo disruptor, and thought leader in the field of direct medical practice, pioneering the 'exemplary primary care model' via Ideal Medical Practices. For more information, see: http://www.idealmedicalpractices.org/index.html. Dr. Moore is a compelling keynote speaker with a timely message, who previously directed the HelloHealth University, and selectively managed certain professional medical corporations. Much of the conversation around Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) tends to focus on the intentions of the more mature integrated delivery systems, i.e., Kaiser, Mayo, Geisinger, et al, the establishment health plan community as well as hospital or institutional health systems, yet due to some modest language written into the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, there i...

PROGRAM NOTE: We've re-scheduled Dr. Mark Browne for January 5th, 2010! On the Wednesday, December 29th 2010 program at 11AM Pacific and 2PM Eastern, my guest commentator and co-host is consultant, health innovation thought leader, and blogger, Mark Browne, MD of Pershing Yoakley & Associates. While in the pre-release period of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid rule process, we'll focus on the known fundamentals of Accountable Care Organizations (ACO’s) of interest to physicians. Specifically we’ll address: (1) What are ACO's? Absent regulatory guidance, we have primarily a 30 thousand foot view with some pilot and demonstration exceptions. (2) What are the known or proximal models in operation to date? How are they structured? (3) How will ACO’s impact medicine and my practice in particular? Is this Medicare and Medicaid only? Or will its influence extend to the private or commercial (employer sponsored) market? (4) Why are ACO’s seen as a centerpiece in the Patient Protect...

On the Wednesday, February 2nd 2011 broadcast at 11AM Pacific and 2PM Eastern, my special guest commentator is Jaan Sidorov, MD, a self-described 'blogvocateur', publisher of the Disease Management Care Blog, and former medical director of the Geisinger Health Plan. We'll review several of Dr. Sidorov’s recent blog posts on the ACO market, and focus specifically on attracting 'independent physician' participation into ACOs. Other than mature IDN's such as Mayo, Kaiser and Geisinger, et al, who have risen to the head of the class when discussing ACO potential, there is a second tier of ACO candidates that includes the likes of Advocate Health Partners (see: http://bit.ly/gvJSeY) and Monarch Healthcare. We'll consider their cultural standing, nature and strategies to appeal to the independent physician market, while also exploring the ability of physician leadership sourced from voluntary medical staff culture to add value to the ACO development conversation.
