102H - Managing Value-Based ACO Performance Focusing on Network Performance and Health Equity Through Advanced Analytics

Wednesday, March 22

3:15–4:15 p.m.

The Delaware Valley ACO (DVACO), one of the largest Medicare and commercial ACOs in the nation, manages a complex population of over 250,000 people across a variety of provider types, including two separate health systems with several thousand physicians. The differing cultures, supported by multiple data and electronic health record systems and myriad governance structures, made it difficult to drive performance improvement with existing analytic tools. For DVACO to be successful in achieving its mission statement it needed to not only be successful in positively impacting the culture of medicine in the Philadelphia region but also establishing and using data and metrics to transform the care in the communities it serves.

This session will discuss and address how a traditional health system and its affiliated providers moves from fee-for-service to value-based care, taking into consideration multiple cultures and leadership.

Presenters will cover the key factors in developing a self-insured, full-risk health plan to support its employees and their families through value-based care initiatives, including addressing health equity. They will also discuss the data-driven analytical tools necessary for success and the clinical leadership that needs to be in place to drive success across a large network of providers.

This session will be of interest to all administrative and clinical leaders of all healthcare organizations, plus mid-careerists and students, who want to better understand the success factors in transforming a community of healthcare providers to value-based care.

Learning Objectives

  • Examine how two traditional health systems and their affiliated providers embrace value-based care, taking into account the health equity issues in their communities served.
  • Identify the analytical tools necessary for success under value-based care in the evolving world of population health, impacting health equity issues and network performance.
