Preparing Physician Practices for Direct Contracting, Risk Models
Value-based care models, including the industry’s most popular model, the accountable care organization (ACO), require a lot more from physicians compared to fee-for-service. Physicians need robust data analytics, increased patient engagement, risk management capabilities, and more in order to improve clinical outcomes and earn value-based reimbursement.
To prepare physicians and their practices for success in new risk-based models, including the new Direct Contracting (DC) Model, CHS is working with its provider partners to give them the tools and data, along with the workflow they need to support that level of care.
Naturally, there is still some concern among physician practice leaders about taking on financial risk, but that constant strategy evolution helps to ensure practices are successful in ACO programs and whatever comes next.
