U.S. health care spending reached $4.1T in 2020, compelling payers and providers to look for more opportunities to reduce costs. UnityPoint Accountable Care is one of the longest-standing Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services ACO Model participants in the country. The organization will share how carefully tracking high-risk patients, targeting unnecessary costs, implementing innovative care delivery models, and leveraging population health analytics have enabled it to trim unnecessary spending and improve quality in key areas– receiving an average of $31M annually in shared savings from its value-based contracting efforts since 2012.

Participants will discover how to:

  • Describe how data and advanced analytics are used to identify the patients who are most likely to benefit from additional support programs and resources.
  • Identify a common set of measures and tools across the ACO network to drive patient care and improve performance.
  • Articulate clear measures of success and celebrate high-performing facilities and providers through a shared savings incentive model.
