Description

With a January 2011 go-live date for an accountable care organization pilot, the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing is entering into the final stages of an RFP process to identify regional organizations that will function as ACOs, the medical homes that will serve as providers within the ACO and a state-wide data and analytics vendor that will provide real-time data to the providers within the ACO.

The Accountable Care Collaborative is part of the Medicaid reform effort in Colorado in which 60,000 Medicaid lives will receive health services through an ACO that will coordinate care and is reimbursed by a per member per month payment and incentives that are aligned to improve health status and reduce avoidable healthcare costs.

Listen to pre-conference comments from Laurel Karabatsos.

During The Colorado Accountable Care Collaborative: Practical Lessons from an ACO in Development, a 45-minute webinar now available as a CD-ROM, via On Demand Web access or as a training DVD, Laurel Karabatsos, deputy Medicaid director and Jerry Smallwood, Medicaid reform unit manager, walked us through the ACO development process in Colorado. From the practical challenges to the processes for addressing these challenges, Karabatsos and Smallwood covered:

  • The system changes required before launching an ACO;
  • Developing performance measures and an incentives program for year one of the pilot and how these will differ in the expansion year;
  • Balancing between prescriptive and permissive in enlisting healthcare providers to be accountable to their outcomes;
  • Determining provider payments and payment levels to support an ACO;
  • Specific strategies for gaining stakeholder support early in the process;
  • Identifying and addressing marketplace resistance; and
  • Creating the ACO roll-out plan.
