Delivering high-quality care in a cost-effective way is a shared goal among many in the health care industry. Accountable Care Organization (ACO) models aim to do exactly that through coordinated care across providers and payers.
Blue Shield of California’s ACO program is nationally recognized and one of the country’s longest standing programs. They have partnered with the San Francisco Health Service System (SFHSS) to deliver low-cost, high-quality care in San Francisco. This partnership is the subject of a recent study by researchers at the University of California – Berkeley (UC Berkeley), with support from Catalyst for Payment Reform via a grant from the Peterson Center on Healthcare, which was recently published by Health Services Research
On Wednesday, May 17, join experts from SFHSS, Blue Shield of California, UC Berkeley, and Catalyst for Payment Reform to learn about the ACO partnership between Blue Shield and SFHSS and see the results from the UC Berkeley study. Attendees will learn about the key features of an ACO program that creates better care experiences for patients, while saving costs.
