Moving from Volume to Value and from Theoretical to Practical Application

Denver, CO | July 9-10, 2015

NACHC is pleased to offer a new training designed to bring together the key leaders (CEO, CMO, CFO, COO, and CIO) of Health Centers, PCAs, and HCCNs to focus on the critical elements for successful participation in both informal and formal Accountable Care Organizations (managed care).

As Health Centers become more responsible for the total cost of care and demonstrat­ing the value associated with each patient’s care, this training will develop a deeper understanding of the theories presented through relevant, present day examples and use of practical applications. It will also discuss how to be accountable in horizontal and vertical networks. The presenters are considered subject matter experts because of their direct field experience in the area of accountable care. Ideally, the audi­ence will consist of the CEO, CFO, and CMO of a Health Center and it is limited to 75 participants. (This program has been recommended for 16.2 CPE credits in the “Specialized Knowledge and Applications” Category.)

Learning Objectives

This comprehensive two-day training is designed to help participants:Gain an in-depth understanding of accountable care and population health.

Building the Framework of Accountable Care Communities

Tuesday, July 21, 2015
Whether it’s due to the impact of the Affordable Care Act, a national focus on the Triple Aim, or current CMS innovation projects and HRSA initiatives, the operational environment of Health Centers are swiftly changing. This session will identify the types of models that Health Centers have engaged nationally (i.e. IPAs, ACOs, MCOs) to meet the challenge of expanding their capacity to serve as high-quality healthcare organizations. In addition, participants will learn what payers and health systems expect from Health Centers, the role Health Centers can play in this new landscape, and an overview of the challenges and opportunities of new models of accountable, clinically integrated care and reimbursement.
