For the first time we have access to data that can assess how a provider’s unique practice patterns will ultimately make them successful in risk.

Ashley Distler, Senior Client Strategist at RowdMap, Inc., will be speaking at National Association of Accountable Care Organizations (NAACOS) on how provider organizations can use newly released government data on populations and physicians to better calculate risk, manage the health of a population and intervene and capture the value they create to succeed in new economic models for value based care.

The presentation entitled, “Are You Risk-Ready? Using Government Benchmarks to Identify, Quantify and Reduce Low and No-Value Care to Succeed in Risk” will be delivered at the 2016 Spring Conference of NAACOS, on Wednesday, March 30t, 2016 at the Hilton Baltimore in Baltimore, MD:

NAACOS conferences are the only ACO events exclusively organized by ACOs. In it’s effort to create an environment for advocacy and shared learning, the conference will address the needs of both new and established ACOs through plenaries, breakouts, exhibits, and pre-conference workshops. More than 500 ACO leaders are expected to attend. RowdMap, Inc. partners with NAACOS efforts to use government benchmark data to excel in pay for value arrangements whether traditional ACOs, Next generations ACOs or 'Virtual ACOs'.

The presentation will discuss the concept of Risk-Readiness® and how RowdMap’s clients are using government data to identify, quantify and reduce no-value and low-value care through a financial risk management framework. Reducing no-value care, which accounts for thirty cents of every dollar spent, drives success in new economics models such as accountable care organizations (ACOs). The presentation will highlight how this technique is a fundamental building block to being successful in any type of risk bearing program. All without the need to integrate traditional data such as claims, Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) or Electronic Health Records (EHRs).

“For the first time we have access to data that can assess how a provider’s unique practice patterns will ultimately make them successful in risk, regardless of the underlying rules of a particular program. We look at provider performance through a lens of risk management and can recommend specific ways in which they can reduce utilization that does not lead to any better value for patients” said Ashley Distler, Senior Client Strategist, RowdMap, Inc.
