As a participant in CMS Physician Group Practice Demonstration project, Dartmouth-Hitchcock has developed a competency in population health management that is being deployed in ongoing ACO pilots with Medicare and Cigna and in an ACO pilot in development with Anthem/WellPoint.
Listen to pre-conference comments from Dr. Barbara Walters.
During Leveraging Population Health Management To Meet Accountable Care Organization Efficiency Metrics, a 45-minute recorded webinar on June 1st, Dr. Barbara Walters, senior medical director with Dartmouth-Hitchcock, shares how the pilots have demonstrated the value of an ACO by achieving efficiency, quality and cost targets.
