Accountable Care Symposium to Focus on Emergency Department and Inpatient Transitions of Care

Austin, Texas – November 29, 2016 – The Caravan Health two-day Accountable Care Symposium on January 11 and 12, 2017 at The Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs in Phoenix, Arizona, will provide hands-on training for ACO’s, CPC+ participants and forward-thinking primary care practices that want to learn simple techniques that improve care, lower cost and help practices earn significant bonuses under MACRA.

The Caravan Health Accountable Care Symposium will teach proven methods for implementing Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC+) Programs, Accountable Care Organizations (ACO’s) and new, billable primary care services. In addition to focusing on a variety of key topics in population health, the Symposium will teach emergency department and inpatient follow up procedures. Hands-on workshops will provide key materials and training to help attendees to strengthen their skills and gain confidence carrying out these processes.

  • Receive scripts, tools and training to approach high volume hospitals and emergency departments to develop notification processes upon discharge.
  • Receive training on protocols for scheduling post-discharge follow-up with your nurse.
  • Learn how to bill for Transitional Care Management Services.

“Our patients are highly vulnerable during these transitions from the hospital and emergency department settings.” stated Lynn Barr, CEO of Caravan Health. “This program will help our practices help our patients when they need it the most.”

The first day of the symposium will be dedicated to policy: explaining the interaction between MACRA and advanced payment models and showcasing real world experiences from pioneers of accountable care and practice transformation. The second day will feature hands-on workshops that will provide instruction on how to simply and affordably implement chronic care management and behavioral health interventions, in addition to wellness, risk adjustment and stratification programs. A special workshop will be dedicated to MACRA’s new Advancing Care Information category, providing practical tips on how to implement the workflows that will achieve the highest scores.

Participants that are currently enrolled in the Caravan Health ACO or CPC+ programs or are participating in any Practice Transformation Network may attend the Symposium at no cost if they register by December 15, 2016. A complete agenda and registration are available through the Caravan Health website
