Wednesday Update

By Gregg A. Masters, MPH

I just finished listening to a webinar led by Justin T. Barnes, VP at Greenway Medical Technologies, aka @HITadvisor.

While a blend of strategic and granular takeaways from the final ACO rule, the webinar provided a useful overview of the broader implications of health reform and innovation both from the point of view of Medicare as well as the private market.

During the webinar Justin links ARRA to PPACA and the somewhat lesser known ‘stealth plays’ stimulated by CMS’ Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

Once the links are available, I will post them here.

Also, we are pulling together a ‘Pioneer ACO deep dive’ from A to Z, where we will profile the enterprise, market conditions, risk maturity level, and business model of each of the candidate ACOs. Details to follow.
