Dr. Khan’s panel, “The Next Generation of ACOs”, which took place October 7 from  8:45 – 10:00 AM, highlighted how advanced analytics and population health management are helping to bring positive outcomes for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)  In her discussion, Dr. Khan addressed how population health management enables healthcare organizations to meet their operational, financial and clinical goals, by leveraging advanced analytics to identify critical gaps in care and streamline administrative costs, and how key it is to involve patients in managing their own care and their health outcomes.

A great recap of Dr. Khan’s panel was posted to US News’ Health site, “Experts Say Success of ACOs Hinges on Patient Engagement.”

Here is an excerpt from the article: 

“You have to best fit your approaches to the risk level,” Dr. Khan said. This might mean that low-risk patients would get reminders about prevention; middle-risk patients would get information on chronic disease-management interventions; and high-risk patients would get information on hospitalization.

Khan added: “For us to be really effective, we need to build in [patients’] behavioral and social data.”

All the panelists agreed that ACOs are only the beginning of a revolutionary paradigm shift in healthcare from a disease management perspective to a preventative/wellness focused one.

Khan called ACOs “the tip of the iceberg,” of a more fundamental cultural shift in health care. “Society needs to change to encourage people to take more ownership of own health.”
