We missed our #ACOchat today due to other commitments and a full schedule. Our intention is for the ‘TweetChat to run on a weekly basis, with Tuesday at 3PM Eastern/12 Noon Pacific time as the preferred slot on the calendar. Though until we reach some community consensus or affirmation of the day, and time chosen, can remain somewhat flexible until we land of solid ground.
Meanwhile, I’ve been noticing the many resources specific to Accountable Care and ACO’s in particular that are being posted to Twitter almost daily, all of which are adding value to the emerging conversation.
As a reminder, we remain in the 60 day comment period of the notice of proposed rule issued by CMS on March 31st, 2011. Their release has stimulated quite a bit of conversation. For an overview of the Medicare Shared Savings Program, click here. To review the complete published rule and comment online before June 6th, 2011 deadline, click here.
In a separate post, I will list some of the more useful resources found on Twitter in the last week or so.
