Modern Healthcare | April 6, 2021
Year after year, surveys show the same thing: Healthcare providers’ evolution toward accepting risk to keep patients healthy—widely viewed as the holy grail of lowering healthcare costs—has been painfully slow. So long as that’s the case, experts say the financial returns providers can expect to draw from population health management, where they gather patient data and use it to craft health improvement programs, will depend on how much of their revenue is tied to risk.
Becker's Hospital Review | April 13, 2021

The movement to community-based care had momentum even prior to the pandemic, but never has the opportunity for change been more primed than present day. At Chapters Health System, this change was really an expansion of the mission we’ve always served. With the successful launch of our most recent program, Assurity High-Needs DCE, Chapters Health continues to redefine how community-based care is solving some of healthcare’s most complex cases.
Clinical pharmacists are in an ideal position to manage multiple aspects of patient care within value-based care models. In 2015, Nova Southeastern University College of Pharmacy founded the Accountable Care Organization Research Network, Services, and Education (ACORN SEED), a team of pharmacy practice faculty dedicated to using innovative approaches to patient care while providing unique learning experiences for pharmacy students by partnering with primary care–based accountable care organizations in the South Florida region.
The goal of the value movement is to incentivize providers to move away from the traditional fee-for-service model and provide coordinated care for patients with an eye toward improving quality and reducing cost. One key mechanism to achieve this goal is ACO models that—because they are offered along a continuum of varying levels of financial risk and reward—allow participants to progressively assume more risk while successfully managing the quality of care for patients.
