Atlanta ACO Forum

Co-sponsored by Greenway Health, the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce recently hosted an influential gathering of healthcare, business and community leaders to enact a blueprint for healthcare coordination and best practices throughout metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia, focusing on evolving regulations and requirements around the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Shared Savings/Accountable Care Organization care coordination and payment reform initiative that seeks to create large communities of health.

Moderated by Greenway Vice President of Marketing, Industry and Government Affairs Justin T. Barnes, the Atlanta ACO Forum featured Wil Yu, special assistant of Innovations and Research, Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and Vincent L. Frakes, federal policy director of the Washington, DC-based Center for Health Transformation, along with area doctors, health system, university and legal healthcare experts addressing the formation of care coordination strategies beneficial to patients and addressing rising healthcare costs.

Barnes, who also co-chairs the chamber’s Bioscience Leadership Council, along with other co-sponsors of the event, has also formulated a national Accountable Care Community of Practice (AC CoP) organizing similar events around the country.
