Free Webinar With Two Thought Leaders in Healthcare
What’s Wrong with Accountable Care, and How to Make it Right
A Webinar with John Toussaint, MD and David Krueger, MD
Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015, 10:00-11:00 AM Central Time
Four years of nation-wide testing by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has now proved that the current payment models will not work for coordinated care initiatives in the long term. Learn how in the current ACO models, inefficiency is rewarded and lower-cost systems are penalized. In order to create a sustainable model there are fundamental issues that must be addressed. Learn what these are, and what it would take to make this a viable option as a value-based payment initiative. You’ll hear Dr. John Toussaint, MD, CEO of ThedaCare Center for Healthcare Value, with co-author Dr. David Krueger, MD, Director of the Bellin-ThedaCare Healthcare Partners, the #1 Pioneer ACO for quality in 2014, discuss what’s wrong with the current system, and how it can be fixed.
