Part II of ACO Implementation - watch Part I here

In order to succeed in an Accountable Care Organization, all participants in the facility need to be aware of the goals and objectives of joining an ACO, and each individual needs to understand what role they play in the success of the ACO. Members of the team should be engaged both in the design of the implementation and the potential reward for participation. Changing one's practice to meet the requirements of an ACO is not without challenges. Consequently, staff and providers need to believe it will add value both to their patients' lives and to theirs. 

Traditionally, one of the more challenging groups to engage is the providers. They already have many demands on their time and adopting new ways of doing things requires a vision of why it is important and why it will benefit them and their patients. 

This presentation will describe some of the elements that help build a team to successfully manage this transition so that everyone succeeds. 

Speaker: Dr. Paul Kleeberg, MD
