Accountable Care Strategy

Healthcare Strategy Group plans, designs and implements system-wide strategies for accountable care, population health management and clinical integration. 

One of the greatest challenges hospital and health system executives face today is addressing the transformation to value-based care. The shift from volume to value is gaining momentum. Take 30 minutes to watch this presentation by Dr. Patrick Conway, Acting Principal Deputy Administrator for Innovation and Quality and Chief Medical Officer of CMS, at the National ACO Summit in June, and you’ll know that it’s no longer a question of, “If value-based care will impact my organization,” but “When?” and “How?”

Hospital and health system executives are all asking the same two questions: “What are our options?” and “What strategy should we pursue?”

As your strategic partner, Healthcare Strategy Group will help you answer this question by guiding your organization through the evaluation, planning and design, and implementation of a system-wide strategy to address accountable care and payment reform. Our philosophy revolves around clinical integration and financial alignment among hospitals and employed and independent providers.

Healthcare Strategy Group can help your organization in the following areas:
1. ACO Planning, Design & Implementation
2. Clinical Integration Program Development & Implementation
3. Clinical Transformation Strategy

We create clinically and financially integrated provider networks capable of achieving the institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI’s) Triple Aim:

  • improving the patient experience of care,
  • improving the health of populations, and
  • reducing the per capita cost of healthcare.
