Adele Allison is the National Director of Government Affairs for SuccessEHS, an Alabama company that is a leading national provider of ambulatory EHR software. Allison is charged with monitoring changes and mandates in healthcare legislation and reform, ensuring that SuccessEHS and parties of interest are well-positioned to navigate challenges and identify opportunities for physicians and ambulatory care settings in regards to specific EHR, billing and overall practice needs.
Created under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), CMS has begun contracting with Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to provide services for a defined population of Medicare patients. The Final Rule governing the establishment of ACOs was released in October 2011, with the first wave of CMS-contracted ACOs launched in April 2012.
Today, there are an estimated 328 ACOs across the U.S. with some 25 to 31 million patients being affected by this model, and big growth is expected in 2013. Each ACO will need to be armed with technology tools such as EHR, HIE and Patient Portals as a foundation for achieving cost-effective and patient-centric quality of care.
