Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Management and Consultation

CHIA DEX Ventures provides consultation and ongoing management for providers interested in forming an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). As healthcare reform continues and networks begin to transition away from traditional fee-for-service models,

CHIA DEX Ventures believes that providers must move from generating their revenue solely from patient care to a combination of patient care and shared savings. An ACO provides a template for providers to contract with governmental and commercial payers in a new model.

In support of ACO development, CHIA DEX Ventures provides the following services:

  • Education & Engagement
  • Feasibility Analysis

Market Selection

  • For Medicare ACOs, does the market have enough traditional Medicare beneficiaries?
  • Are the baseline healthcare costs high enough to demonstrate savings to governmental and commercial payers?

Development of ACO Quality Criteria

  • Promotion of evidence based medicine
  • Processes to promote patient engagement
  • Reporting on quality and cost measures
  • Promotion of coordination of care

Partner Selection: Capitalization & Administration

  • While providers understand the clinical side, is guidance needed on the administrative side?
  • Identify and vet potential ACO partners

Ongoing Oversight and Management

CHIA DEX Ventures will coordinate every step of the ACO development process from initial interest meetings to payor contracting to distribution of shared savings to its members.
