The non-profit CMR Institute, a leading education provider for biopharmaceutical and medical device professionals, will host its third annual conference focusing on effective collaboration between accountable care organizations (ACOs) and life sciences companies. ACOs and Industry: A Collaboration for Value will be held at the Millennium Hotel in Minneapolis on March 26–27, 2015.
The two-day educational program will explore how companies can support ACOs as they become more engaged in population health management and value-based payment models. “This event is a valuable opportunity for industry leaders to gain insights into how ACO leaders think and what they need to provide higher quality, lower cost care to patients,” says Anthony Slonim, MD, DrPH, CPE, FACPE, president and CEO of Renown Health, CMR Institute’s board chair, and conference co-chair. “By understanding what ACOs truly need, the industry can be part of the solution.”
The event will offer thought leader presentations, expert panel discussions, and case studies covering hot topics like outcomes research, patient engagement, and emerging sales models. “Healthcare reform presents challenges and opportunities for providers and industry alike,” says Jeffrey Farber, MD, MBA, CPE, FACP, CEO of Mount Sinai Care (ACO), chief medical officer of Mount Sinai Health Partners (MSO), and conference co-chair. “This event gives industry executives the insights they need to have effective conversations with ACO leaders.”
The conference will bring together ACO executives and industry leaders from sales, marketing, training, government affairs, contracting, health economics, and other functions. “It’s becoming evident that transforming healthcare requires collaboration between providers, payers, and industry,” says Michelle O’Connor, president and CEO of CMR Institute. “This conference offers a rare opportunity for leaders from a variety of disciplines to work together to develop practical strategies that bend the cost curve and keep patients healthier.”
