NC ACO Council Shares Best Practices; Celebrates Successes

The NC ACO Council, which, under the auspices of the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS), brings together the state’s Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and Next Generation Accountable Care Organizations to share best practices to improve outcomes, met recently at the NCMS Center for Leadership in Medicine in Raleigh.

Elissa Langley, the Chief Operating Officer, ACO Operations for Triad Health Network (THN), spoke about Triad’s success as a Next Generation ACO. THN was second in the nation in shared savings for 2016. Langley shared the keys to the success and lessons learned with the 50 representatives attending the meeting.

“Physician leadership and engagement is paramount,” she summed up.

The Council also heard a presentation from the Executive Director of the Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership, Kristina Natt Och Dag, PhD, about a leadership development program focused on ACOs that is being established through the Institute. Other topics discussed included post-acute care strategies and the 2016 MSSP and Next Generation ACO results recently released in which North Carolina ACOs fared well overall.
