The CMS's Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) recently announced the strategic redesign of their current Global and Professional Direct Contracting (GPDC) model.
Beginning in January 2023, the redesigned program, known as ACO REACH, seeks to drive greater provider participation and improved quality of care, with a strong focus on improving health equity and closing the gaps for millions of vulnerable beneficiaries.
For today's show, we've assembled an expert panel to weigh in on the new ACO REACH model, including its framework, benefits, and opportunities.
On the panel: Melanie Matthews, CEO of PSW and Northwest Momentum Health Partners ACO, and President of MultiCare Connected Care. She has more than 20 years in cost-of-care management, CMMI value-based care models, and is a leading voice of physician health policies.
Joining Melanie on the panel are Brian Silverstein, MD, chief population health officer at Innovaccer; and Dan Roberts, national director for value engineering at Innovaccer.
