Accountable Care Organizations: Value Metrics and Capital Formation from Productivity Press
Outlines the historical background and evolution of the ACO model as the basis for the development of the value metrics and capital formation analyses that are foundational to assessing the current efficacy and capacity for change.
The book examines the four pillars of value in the healthcare industry: regulatory, reimbursement, competition, and technology in addressing the value metrics of ACOs, including requirements for capital formation, financial feasibility, and economic returns. It focuses the discussion of non-monetary value on a review of aspects of population health within the context of such objectives as improved quality outcomes and access to care.
Explains why ACOs might be the cost-containment and quality improvement answer the industry has been looking for
Describes the circumstances and capital structures where ACOs represent a sound investment
Includes a foreword by Peter A. Pavarini, Esq.
The book examines the positive externalities of the ACO model, including results for third parties outside the basic construct of the ACO contracts shared savings payments. It also discusses the potential role and opportunities for consultants in assisting their provider clients in the consideration, development, implementation, and operation of an ACO.
Accountable Care Organizations is the first comprehensive text on capital formation and value metrics for this new healthcare business model… I can think of no one more qualified to write it than Bob Cimasi at Health Capital Consultants ... it is destined to become a classic work … read, review, refer, and profit by this valuable resource.
—Dr. David Edward Marcinko, FACFAS MBA, Institute of Medical Business Advisors, Inc.
