Health care is on a path to value, regardless of health care reform uncertainties. Thus, critical access hospitals need to understand accountable care, especially if considering joining an ACO. This webinar will present a new Excel-based tool developed by the Rural Health Value team and Premier, Inc. The Critical Access Hospital Pro Forma for Shared Savings assesses the financial implications of joining a Medicare Shared Savings Plan Accountable Care Organization (ACO). The publicly available, free tool highlights five-year revenue and expense forecasts financial projections that compare current state to Medicare ACO participation and an easy to understand table and chart summary outputs, including hospital and physician financial projections.
