AHRMM Webinar: ACO Risk-based Managed Care Agreements and the Impact on Provider – Supplier Relationships

Date: Jun 02, 2020 - Jun 02, 2020

This webinar will be on June 2 at 12:00 p.m. Central / 1:00 p.m. Eastern. 
Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) have matured over the past decade to become one of the key pathways to developing risk-based managed care agreements aimed at addressing patient centered value of care. There is a continuum of contracting models that ACOs engage in from pay-for-performance incentives to global capitation. As ACOs move up this continuum creating alignment between the supply chain and clinicians is an opportunity to improve safety, outcomes, and reduce costs.  

How do ACO’s translate their risk-based managed care agreements into meaningful supplier-provider value-based contracting relationships? Certainly the need to address cost savings with access to the appropriate and necessary technologies required to provide the best of care will be a high priority. How do these supplier contracts add more value to the required care management model necessary to provide the highest level of care? How does the supply chain team assure physicians that they will be able to access the highest quality products and technologies to advance care under these risk-based managed care agreements?  

These questions and their implications will be explored further as the accelerating environment of risk-based managed care evolves. As part of this presentation, we will examine the preparedness that will be essential to “ready” the supply chain profession to respond to this new environment ahead.
