KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A limited number of tickets are available to attend Caravan Health’s second annual Accountable Care Symposium on December 6 and 7, 2017 at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. 

The nation’s most innovative and influential event in population-based payment models will convene hundreds of healthcare leaders from across the country to address the most pressing concerns of population health today.  

“With the recent announcement showing Caravan Health’s partner ACOs leading the industry in clinical and financial results, and that 90 percent are on track for savings in 2017, we are thrilled to dive deep into our robust data, proven processes and clinical expertise that will give attendees the strategies they need to accelerate their population health transformation,” said Lynn Barr, chief executive officer of Caravan Health. “The symposium will help leaders foster new ideas to position their health system for success. We have less than 100 tickets available so we encourage participants to act fast.”  

This year’s program focuses on how organizations can control their own destinies. It will feature best practices from those who have overcome various challenges for ACO management, population health engineering, navigating MACRA and MIPS, and other key elements of a strategic vision for improved clinical and financial performance.  

An impressive list of speakers will take the stage including Caravan Health’s Lynn Barr, MPH; Chief Medical Officer, Anna Loengard, MD; Senior Vice President of Strategy, Tim Gronniger, MHSA, MPP; National Rural Health Association’s Senior Vice President for Member Services, Brock Slabach, MPH; Co-founder and Partner of Chamber Hill Strategies, Jennifer Bell; and Assistant Professor of Medicine for Boston University School of Medicine, Christopher Shanahan, MD, MPH. 

“The dynamic lineup of speakers are pioneers in the population-based payment model landscape,” said Jack Newsom, ScD, Caravan Health chief program officer. “They each bring unparalleled value in clinical and policy expertise.”  

Industry experts will also lead over 20 breakout sessions with topics focusing on patient care planning, quality improvement, Hierarchical Condition Categories coding, Chronic Care Management, Behavioral Health Integration, Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) and CPC+ programs, and more.
