ACO Strategies Reviewed At Financial Managers Conference

The Home Care Alliance’s annual Financial Managers Conference was held last week at the Conference Center at Waltham Woods.   The conference included presentations on benchmarking and operational efficiencies (from principals from BKD and McBee Associates), as well as a presentation from Emily Brower, the Director of ACO programs at Atrius Health.  Atrius Health is one of five Pioneer ACOs in Eastern MA.  Ms Brower’s presentation was summarized in Home Health Technology Report by Tim Rowan, who  was also at the conference to present on IT Trends.

Ms Brower talked frankly about their need to manage costs, their dependence on their home care agency VNA Care Network/VNA of Boston and their progress in creating truly integrated plans of care.  Read Tim Rowan’s summary here.
