Accountable Care Organizations

Date: 15th September 2011 - 16th September 2011 Location: Chicago - Illinois - USA

A Two-Day Industry Forum Highlighting the Best Practices of Pilot Programs and Flourishing Organizational Structures in Accountable Healthcare.

Hear Case Studies From America’s Most Innovative Health Care Systems Pioneering the Accountable Care Organization Model

With the new healthcare reform legislation, physicians have been given an opportunity to work together to create a highly efficient and accountable healthcare payment system through Accountable Care Organizations. As a significance part of Medicare’s pilot program in the Senate’s health reform bill, the ACO model boasts an opportunity for networks of healthcare providers to improve the quality of care provided to patients. It simultaneously provides a system in which healthcare facilities can cut expenses and share savings. As this payment structure moves to the forefront of healthcare, how will your organization position itself to excel?

ACI’s National Conference on Cutting Costs and Raising Quality of Healthcare with Accountable Care Organizations will bring together leading hospital executives, physicians and individuals involved in the organization and direction of an effective ACO. Our three-day symposium will focus on developing and effectively managing a comprehensive ACO to better serve, treat and maintain a healthy community. Obtain expert knowledge through case studies, research findings and successful organizational models from pilot ACO programs. Register today for this unique networking and informational opportunity to develop tools and maximize the potential of your Accountable Care Organization.

Join us September 15-16, 2011 for Cutting Costs and Raising Quality of Healthcare through Accountable Care Organizations, and hear from growing and nationally recognized organizations with ACO programs that are positioned to meet evolving physician and patient demands.

Working together, participating health systems will develop the organization, skills, team and operational capabilities necessary to become effective ACOs capable of lowering costs by improving care coordination, efficiency, quality and patient satisfaction.
