Today’s healthcare landscape is characterized by unrelenting change and constantly increasing complexity. It can be said that the reforms of the Accountable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 exacerbate this situation while at the same time attempting to ameliorate problems over the long term. Whatever the case, healthcare providers have their work cut out for them – and no other part of the organization will play a more critical role than healthcare operations.

This paper explores the unique perspectives of both types of organizations. The participants include two of the original 32 Pioneer ACOs; the nation’s largest commercial ACO; a major IDN that is pursuing its own ACO pathway; a large stand-alone hospital that has yet to take the formal step of creating an ACO but is experimenting with the model; and a large, independent, multispecialty physician group that is wary of stepping into the ACO waters.
The transition from fee-for-service to value-based reimbursement has been a challenge for many providers. Financial incentives that favored high service volumes must now be re-focused to accommodate alternative models such as bundled payments and accountable care organizations (ACOs).
No matter how these issues are resolved, the new health care reality demands that providers deliver quality care while controlling costs. Use these six steps to bring success to your organization in the new reimbursement landscape:
1. Understand Your Costs
2. Reduce Out-Migration from Your Network
3. Maximize Pay-for-Performance Reimbursement
4. Identify Early Opportunities for Utilization Reductions
5. Support Chronic Care and Disease Management
6. Predict Who Will Develop Issues
Like healthcare organizations elsewhere, reducing readmissions had become a top priority by 2011. Advocate, the state’s largest healthcare provider, had just signed its first shared savings agreement with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois to become one of the first commercial accountable care organizations (ACOs) in the country. This event, along with others such as signing up as a Medicare Shared Savings Provider, led to re-evaluating the care continuum throughout Advocate Health’s 250 sites of care, including 13 acute-care hospitals, two children’s hospitals and a growing home healthcare division.
