The ACO Council, which brings together the Accountable Care Organizations throughout the state that are part of the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) to share valuable information is offering a free webinar on July 19 from noon to 1 p.m. on “How to Master Your ACO’s Benchmark for Financial Success.” Register here.

Stephen Nuckolls, CEO of Coastal Carolina Health Care, PA, and its ACO, Coastal Carolina Quality Care, Inc., will offer his insights into the topic and share his experiences on:

  • The importance of benchmarks compared to quality;
  • The MSSP benchmarking process (costs, risk adjustment, regional adjustment, trend);
  • Strategies to improve your benchmark (HCC codes, cost initiatives, impact on trend); and
  • How to compute quarterly performance estimates.

Nuckolls is responsible for the direct management of the 60-provider multi-specialty physician-owned Coastal Carolina Health Care medical practice and its ACO, which is currently in a two-sided risk model.  Prior to helping form Coastal Carolina Quality Care in 1997, he helped guide physicians and integrated hospital organizations in the formation of larger systems.

Nuckolls earned his BA in Economics from Davidson College and his MAC from UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. He is a founding member of the National Association of ACOs and served as its board chair from 2016-2017; he currently serves as Treasurer. He also has served on several advisory boards and committees for the North Carolina Medical Society and is a frequent speaker on ACOs and related topics at medical conferences including presentations for the Medical Group Management Association, the American College of Physicians, and the National Association of ACOs.
