Presentation on Accountable Care Organizations at the San Antonio HIMSS Chapter September Lunch & Learn
I was given the opportunity to speak at our local HIMSS Chapter September Lunch & Learn session held at Dave & Busters. The presentation was on “The Role of Accountable Care Organizations in the Evolution of Healthcare”. In working with our chapters Program Director we thought a broad topic that encompassed many aspects of healthcare delivery would be a great way to kick-off our foundation series and serve to lay an educational foundation for our chapter members.
We plan on offering this presentation and that of our other speakers on our website (www.sahimss.org) soon so stay tuned. If you weren’t able to attend you can grab a copy of my presentation by clicking here. I discussed a variety of topics specific to ACO’s including recent healthcare reform models, ACO formation, care model and medical management capabilities and their impact on Healthcare IT (HIT).
It is clear to me our membership is interested in the impact of healthcare reform given the questions and interest after my presentation. This is exactly the kind of dialog we wanted to create as our next several foundation series will focus on tertiary topics such as Health Information Exchanges, Medical Informatics. Additional topics will include the EMR deployments & utilization in other countries, and military healthcare which San Antonio has a strong presence.
As always we love your feedback and I would encourage you to send us a message through the San Antonio HIMSS Chapter website (www.sahimss.org). Don’t forget to register for a future event to secure your place.
