Forging partnerships between life sciences companies and Accountable Care Organizations to deliver high-quality, cost-efficient patient outcomes

6th Partnering with ACOs Summit – 6th Partnering with ACOs Summit

confirms as keynote to discuss the ACO Final Rule

Don’t miss Terri L. Postma, M.D., Medical Officer, Performance-Based Payment Policy Group, Center for Medicare, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), as she presents a webinar titled
“The CMS ACO Final Rule.”

Since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), both quality and accountability have been brought to the forefront of the American healthcare system.  In turn, life science companies have had to tailor their approach when targeting Accountable Care Organization (ACO)  partnerships in order to best meet these metrics and standards. These consolidated networks require a complete overhaul of previous techniques, especially with the exponential growth in the number of those covered by ACOs.

The purpose of the 6th Partnering with ACOs Summit is to have those from the manufacturing realm, along with decision-makers from the provider’s side, explain how to forge successful partnerships between the two entities. An expert speaking faculty will cover all facets of ACO partnerships, including sales, marketing, outcomes, metrics and quality. Methods of information-exchange will include detailed presentations, collaborative panel discussions and an interactive dinner where attendees will hear from ACO leaders on the evolution of the healthcare system.
