Caravan Health Accountable Care Symposium to Feature Training on Access and Continuity Solutions

Join hundreds of accountable care pioneers to learn how rural hospitals, clinics, small practices and independent providers can achieve better outcomes and higher earnings.

Austin, Texas – November 15, 2016 – Caravan Health will be providing 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 two-day symposium will be held January 11 and 12, 2017 at The Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs in Phoenix, Arizona.

In addition to other population health-focused curriculum, the Symposium will train practices on how to implement the following access and continuity programs:

  • Provide a 24/7 nurse-advice line to triage patients and reduce the call burden on the practice; directing patients to the practice only when appropriate.
  • Teach your staff to empanel patients based on proven methodology, measure access and continuity, and rebalance patient loads as appropriate.
  • Help your staff use claims data to develop diabetic, cardiology and pulmonology panels, identify high value specialists for collaboration and organize quarterly meetings with you, your specialists and the care team to review your panels.
  • Help you implement Alternative Visits, including teaching you and your staff about scheduling, documentation and tracking methodologies.

“Leaders who attend will leave the Symposium with an understanding of exactly what needs to be done in 2017 in order to succeed in their ACO, CPC+ and MACRA+ programs,” stated Lynn Barr, CEO of Caravan Health.

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 a 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
