As one of 10 participants in the CMS Physician Group Practice Demonstration, Dartmouth-Hitchcock has developed a competency in population health management that is being deployed in current and planned ACO pilots. Dr. Barbara Walters, Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s senior medical director, describes how the CMS demo experience provided the building blocks for an ACO, the impact of its pilots on Medicare utilization and costs, and the critical elements in managing population health in an ACO. Dr. Walters will share how Dartmouth-Hitchcock pilots have demonstrated the value of an ACO by achieving efficiency, quality and cost targets during a June 1, 2011 webinar, “Leveraging Population Health Management To Meet ACO Efficiency Metrics,” sponsored by The Healthcare Intelligence Network.
