STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 719 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Accountable Care Organization improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 719 standard requirements:
- What is the role of a hospital in a new community environment that provides more efficient and effective health care (e.g., what are the redesigned structures and models, the role and implementation of accountable care organizations, the structures and processes needed to implement new payment models such as bundled payments, and how do organizations transition to this new role)?
- Distribution of Savings; It should be distributed in proportion to contribution to savings, after expenses, but will savings go to investors, owners, to cover lost hospital or providers revenues relative to fee for service?
- Despite widespread acknowledgment of the need for funda- mental reform of payment for primary care, why does volume- driven fee for service remain the dominant mode of payment?
- Will beneficiaries that receive services from a health care professional or provider that is a part of an ACO be required to receive all his/her services from the ACO?
- Baseline Data; This is often overlooked. To compare anything, there needs to be a beginning reference point. Can you collect costs and quality data?
- How does an obstetrician find the right ACO partner, mesh these initiatives into programming, and be rewarded fairly?
- Patient Engagement; How can your compensation be based on outcomes when the patient is not in the game?
- Will hospitals be willing to embrace a true ACO structure, which will likely drive down hospitalization?
- How do I terminate or dissolve if the prospects are poor or the measurements are inappropriate/adverse?
- Will participating ACOs be subject to payment penalties if their savings targets are not achieved?
