Last year, CMS unveiled the Pioneer ACO program to spur growth of Accountable Care Organizations prior to the full implementation of the Medicare Shared Savings program. These organizations are pioneers in the sense that they have already embarked on organized care practices and have some of the needed infrastructure in place and are therefore leading the way for others. Please join Milliman's Jill Van Den Bos on Wednesday this week as she addresses the elements of the Pioneer ACO model, the components of financial risk and cost drivers involved and strategies to identify interventions and opportunities.
On Thursday this week, our webinar explores the future of California’s healthcare districts. The decades immediately after World War Two saw the creation of public healthcare districts in California that provided a framework for a burgeoning system of community and rural hospitals. Today, the purpose of these hospital districts is being questioned. Join Michael A. Dowell, partner in the law firm of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, Walter Kopp, president of Medical Management Services, Inc. and Cleo Burtley, manager with The Camden Group on May 24, 2012 at 10 a.m. Pacific as they explore the future of California’s healthcare districts.
