Webinar: Learn from Leaders: ACOs in Underserved Areas and Their Effects on Cost and Utilization
Join Abt Associates for a webinar titled “Learn from Leaders: ACOs in Underserved Areas and Their Effects on Cost and Utilization.” The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) introduced the ACO Investment Model (AIM) as part of the Medicare Shared Savings Program. The goal was to encourage the formation of ACOs in rural and underserved areas that typically lack the capital for necessary IT infrastructure or staffing investments. AIM provided upfront and ongoing payments to providers to help overcome these financial barriers, which are paid back through shared savings.
Matthew Trombley, Ph.D., a health economist at Abt, will discuss results from our independent evaluation of the first performance year of this program, including the effect of AIM on Medicare costs and utilization.
This webinar is a non-commercial presentation sponsored by ZurickDavis.
