ACO Interim Leadership
200-bed acute care hospital and affiliated multi-specialty medical group.
The health system initiated a CMS Medicare Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organization. During the first year of operations of the 10,000 beneficiary ACO, the physician executive director resigned.
The health system, which has been an i3 client for several years needed to engage interim leadership immediately in order to maintain momentum and trust among the participating physicians. In collaboration with another consulting group, within one week i3 mobilized the resources needed to support our client's critical ACO enterprise. While neither consulting group possessed direct experience in ACOs, together i3 and the other consultant brought leadership skills, deep medical management knowledge, strong understanding of regulatory process, experience in physican-hospital collaboration and exceptional analytical expertise.
