All laws are modified by future legislatures, and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will not be an exception. Healthcare organizations must be prepared to respond as the law evolves. Responding to Healthcare Reform clarifies the complexities of the ACA by explaining the underlying theories that shaped it, describing the act's impact on the role of the healthcare organization, and offering direction for strategy formulation. Written for healthcare executives, it focuses on the sections of the bill that are most pertinent to provider operations. Because the ACA creates an uncertain environment, this book is stocked with a variety of tools to help healthcare executives predict change and recalibrate strategies. You will benefit from: * Pactical analysis of key aspects of the bill and how they will impact providers * Descriptions of 20 possible scenarios that can be used to test the viability of strategies under various conditions * Access to a continuously updated companion website that includes sources for strategy implementation

An accountable care organization (ACO) is a healthcare organization characterized by a payment and care delivery model that seeks to tie provider reimbursements to quality metrics and reductions in the total cost of care for an assigned group of patients. Accountable Care Organizations: Value Metrics and Capital Formation explores the historical background and evolution of the ACO model as the basis for the development of the value metrics and capital formation analyses that are foundational to assessing the current efficacy and capacity for change. The book examines the four pillars of value in the healthcare industry: regulatory, reimbursement, competition, and technology in addressing the value metrics of ACOs, including requirements for capital formation, financial feasibility, and economic returns. It focuses the discussion of non-monetary value on a review of aspects of population health within the context of such objectives as improved quality outcomes and access to care. Explains why ACOs might be the cost-containment and quality improvement answer the industry has been looking for Describes the circumstances and capital structures where ACOs represent a sound investment Includes a foreword by Peter A. Pavarini, Esq. The book examines the positive externalities of the ACO model, including results for third parties outside the basic construct of the ACO contracts shared savings payments. It also discusses the potential role and opportunities for consultants in assisting their provider clients in the consideration, development, implementation, and operation of an ACO.
