Identifying improvement opportunities for MSSP ACOs


31 Percent of MSSP ACOs Generated Savings in 2016…Did Yours?

According to CMS data, an estimated 134 MSSP ACOs generated shared savings and earned a distribution totaling $701 million in bonus payments in 2016. While the 2017 results won’t be available until July or August, if your ACO did not generate any savings in 2016 and likely performed the same last year, now is the time to evaluate your performance and unlock the opportunities to improve and achieve savings.

Begin the new Performance Year by evaluating last year’s performance and making proactive, data-driven decisions.

COPE Health Solutions is a national health care consulting firm specializing in optimizing alternative payment methodologies such as the Medicare Shared Savings Program. Drawing on our deep expertise in population health and care management programs, coupled with our proprietary Analytics for Risk Contracting (ARC) Suite of Tools, we help organizations implement programs that improve quality, generate shared savings revenue, and preserve Medicare contribution margin through data-driven techniques.

We have designed a unique assessment specifically for MSSP ACOs in Track 1, which was co-developed with Montefiore Health System’s Care Management Company, LLC (CMO), which has operated successful ACOs for six years. Our assessment examines several domains of performance, including:

  • Clinical governance
  • Technology and use of data
  • Maturity of care management programs

This assessment provides insight into specific areas where MSSP ACOs can make immediate changes and see results.
