Value-based Contracts and ACOs
Population health is a centerpiece to an ACO IT infrastructure, it enables effective network-wide care coordination. Successful ACOs will need to have seamless collaboration and coordination across the entire network of providers. Standardization of best care practices across all care settings is one of the keys to ensuring success in an ACO model. Poorly planned technology investments can risk the success of an ACO program. ACOs will need to have the right population health programs in place, such as effective identification and management of high risk chronic patients, effective network management, and achieving key quality metrics. Choosing those quality improvement and care management processes that yield maximum benefits to both the patient and the organization increases chances of success.
Acupera’s integrated care coordination and population health solution powers ACOs to consistently manage patient populations more effectively and efficiently, drive better outcomes, and decrease overall cost, as required by ACO payment models. Our intuitive and scalable tools help ACOs to proactively manage patient population by risk, disease, care setting, and generate a plan of care that is shared between care team members across the care continuum. Clinical and behavioral pathways identify gaps in care and proactively assign the appropriate interventions to the care team.
