The Future of Risk Adjustment

Highly Experienced with Risk
MSSP 10 Years Later: Lessons Learned, Lessons Yet to Be Taught
The first Medicare Shared Saving Program (MSSP) Accountable Care Organizations launched ten years ago. What have participants learned about the program and about finding success as an ACO? How does participating in an MSSP affect provider practice patterns? Are the savings and quality gains generated worthwhile, despite the relatively low number of participating organizations? Has a successor generation of ACOs, dubbed Pathways to Success, curbed providers' appetite to participate even further? This informative discussion will be moderated by Philip M. Oravetz, MD, MPH, MBA, Chief Population Health Officer at Ochsner Health.
