Focused Initiatives
Focused Initiatives

Our team has simplified the complex goal of generating ACO savings by focusing on a few targeted initiatives that further our population health goals and have savings potential. These areas of attention are the top priorities for ACO work and practices and that excel in these four competencies tend to have positive health outcomes and achieve savings.

The four initiatives include:

Access & Quality

At Aledade, true quality improvement means more than just satisfying performance metrics. We’re founded on the idea that the most important quality metric is maintaining a true connection to primary care. We built the Aledade App, our web-based population health technology powered by Core 4, with tools that enable a thorough assessment of patient risk factors while also promoting discussion on wellness education and advance care planning.

Care Transitions

The evidence is clear that helping patients through transitions between care settings leads to much greater patient satisfaction and much fewer adverse, avoidable and costly health care events. On the Aledade app, we integrate hospital and claims data for timely identification of recent ED patients, and post-discharge workflows enable physicians to follow-up with patients to reduce avoidable readmissions for patients transitioning from an inpatient setting.

Risk Stratification

Risk Stratification is a term of art in healthcare that refers to the alignment of patients with the right clinical initiatives, according to their clinical diagnoses and burden of illness. With the Aledade App, physicians can easily identify care quality and risk gaps across their patient population. Practices who use this target metric and preview risk suggestions are 2 to 3 times more likely to capture risk adjustment opportunities during the patient’s visit.

Care Compass

Our goal is to help primary care practices find new ways to provide even more care to their patients - care that helps improve outcomes and lower costs across the health care system. That includes the use of data to help patients get the best care complementary to the care they get in their PCP’s actual office - care like high value referral management work as well as wraparound programs being pioneered by Aledade Care Solutions, the first of which is Comprehensive Advance Care Planning through Iris.

 
Why now?
Why now?

Healthcare providers won’t be able to rely on traditional revenue models forever. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and many commercial payers are using numerous financial levers to put pressure on providers to improve quality and reduce costs.

Aledade helps turn those pressures into clear and attainable opportunities to deliver better care, strengthen relationships with your patients, and secure long-term sustainability for your practice.

high performance

In 2018, 80 percent of Aledade ACOs received perfect quality scores in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), and physicians in all of Aledade’s partnered ACOs will receive the exceptional performance bonus and a payment increase through the CMS Quality Payment Program (QPP) in 2020.

financial risk

The new Pathways to Success program requires participants to embrace increasing levels of financial risk as they move through the timeline.  Nearly half of Aledade’s 27 Medicare ACOs are already shouldering some degree of risk in the Pathways to Success Program, compared to less than a third of other ACO participants.

shared savings

Aledade ACOs saved Medicare and American taxpayers more than $40 million in 2017 through the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). All of Aledade’s ACOs enrolled in the MSSP improved the quality of care and health of their patients, while a majority of Aledade’s experienced ACOs earned shared savings payments totaling more than $19 million.
