Accountable Care Organizations (ACO), which are promoted by the Affordable Care Act, are starting to have unexpectedly significant impacts across the life sciences industry. For some ACOs offer an escape from the tsunami of rising healthcare costs, but for others, ACOs are a major threat to innovation and the industry’s current sales models. The ACO model triggers major changes in the health delivery system by allowing Medicare and insurers to provide physicians and hospitals financial incentives to cut costs while still providing quality patient care in both the public and private sectors. With rapid year-on-year growth, ACOs are creating new payment and care delivery models for payers and providers. Some key details are being worked out by healthcare systems on the fly, but the overall challenge is for manufacturers to demonstrate the value of their products in ways never seen before. This live webinar will provide attendees with an overview of ACO development and program intent, discuss the internal divisions and leadership of an ACO, the evolving dynamics of the relationship with industry. The webinar will highlight data on what ACOs are actually doing and what metrics are likely to be most impacted.
