|An Update on Accountable Care Organizations|
October 1, 2013
Release Date: October 1, 2011
Approved for 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit
The American Medical Association (AMA) adopted ACO principles on November 9, 2010, at its Interim Meeting in San Diego. The Association is advocating that participation by physicians be voluntary and that barriers for small practices to participate be eliminated. This program will discuss the soon to be released accountable care organization regulations and related issues (e.g. Antitrust). These regulations, will determine how ACOs qualify for CMS' shared savings program in 2012. In addition, the program will explain how ACOs are intended to help physicians and others, including hospitals, coordinate and provide effective quality care. Finally, the program will describe the new nonprofit, member-run health insurer ("CO-OP") program that provides federal loans and grants for start-up insurers that physicians and others might establish and operate, and that may collaborate with physician-driven ACO's.
This activity is designed for medical staff leaders (Chief of Staffs, Medical Staff Presidents, Medical Directors and Medical Staff members), medical staff service professionals and medical staff legal counsel.
