Bridging the Gap: Reaching Consensus on ACO Metrics
Special guest from the University of Pennsylvania Health System
An Edgewater and Informatica Webinar
Bridging the gap between basic definitions of how providers and payers define their view of the world is one of the greatest challenges facing ACO success. Establishing baselines is a critical step to ensuring that both providers and payers are able to answer questions like...
- What is the patient population of a provider?
- What criteria should be used to measure quality?
- What does “cost” mean? What is included in a service “cost”?
To truly manage healthcare costs, payers and providers have to play in the same sandbox; regularly monitoring metrics so that when anomalies occur – which they will – adjustments can rapidly be made.
Richard Cramer, Informatica’s Chief Healthcare Strategist, and Maury DePalo, Director of Edgewater’s Healthcare Practice, will be joined by special guest Senthil Balasubramanian, Manager, Decision Support at University of Pennsylvania Health System, in this third webinar in the series focused on the future of Healthcare Delivery.
