Furthering our mission to fix health care, FHG CEO/Founder Michael Barbouche will attend a CMS and ONC co-hosted meeting on “Health IT to Support ACO and Group Reporting” in Washington D. C, Thursday, April 23, 2015. HHS recently announced measurable goals and a timeline to move the health care system, including the Medicare program, toward paying providers based on the quality, rather than the quantity of care they give patients. By the end of 2016, HHS has set a goal of tying 30 percent of traditional, fee-for-service, Medicare payments to quality or value through alternative payment models, such as accountable care organizations (ACOs) or bundled payment arrangements. HHS has set this goal to 50 percent by the end of 2018.
