An ACO Case Study: Quality Improvement in Healthcare
OSF HealthCare—one of the first Pioneer Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)—has a strong history of providing outstanding quality improvement in healthcare within hospitals, clinics, home health and other health provider entities across Illinois. For ACOs to succeed under value-based care, it is critical that organizations effectively coordinate care in the effort to maximize quality and safety, while minimizing costs and waste. It is also imperative that ACOs understand patients’ needs and values and incorporate them into all health decisions. Please join Leslie Falk, Health Catalyst and the OSF team—recipient of the 2014 Illinois Hospital Association (IHA) Institute for Innovations in Care and Quality’s first annual Tim Philipp Award for Excellence in Palliative and End-of-Life Care—as they discuss how they leveraged technology and data to launch a community-wide supportive care initiative that has successfully maximized value for the populations they serve. Attendees of the webinar will:
- Learn how OSF is improving healthcare quality and delivering on the Triple Aim.
- Explore innovative ways to improve care coordination.
- Discover how technology-enabled solutions drives community, patient, and physician engagement.
- Understand the benefit of a team approach to improving care coordination.
