POP HEALTH FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - April 3 - 4, 2017
Using data from a national sample of ACOs studied across a three-year period from 2013 to 2015, Professor of Information Systems at The University of Texas at Dallas, Indranil Bardhan and his team developed a model to measure the relative performance of ACOs with respect to achievement of cost savings and quality benchmarks. We develop an efficiency score for each ACO based on their relative benchmarking across the sample, after accounting for differences in geographic location, patient mix and ACO track. The results suggest that health IT can improve patient-provider care coordination and better health outcomes in a more efficient manner. This presentation will provide specific example of ACOs that have used health IT to reduce the costs of care coordination and achieve costs savings and better quality.
