Share Article

Working group will develop a blueprint that aligns processes and technology to assist Accountable Care Organizations in achieiving quality targets and cost savings, while improving patient outcomes and access to care.

This alliance is focused on helping ACOs navigate the complex process of adapting to a new healthcare delivery and payment model, while effectively constraining costs and improving population health outcomes.

Prime Dimensions, LLC announces that it has formed an alliance with ironSAGE Group to sponsor an Innovation Accelerator Working Group focused on healthcare payment reform. The Accountable Care Organization (“ACO”) Performance Management working group is aimed at guiding healthcare providers through the complex process of creating and participating in a shared savings program that reduces costs while improving quality and outcomes. Through this alliance, the companies will offer a thorough, effective, and structured approach for bringing best-in-class solutions to address value-based healthcare delivery.

ACOs are regional groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high quality care to their patients. The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, receive the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services, emergency treatment and medical errors. The ACO Performance Management working group will convene to design, develop and deploy an optimal ACO information management system that streamlines reporting, analysis and predictive modeling. By bringing together leading industry practitioners, the working group will accelerate innovation through a collaborative, interdisciplinary, and issue-focused process, along with methodologies and tools that can be applied to solve key business challenges.

According to Michael Joseph, Prime Dimensions’ Founder and Managing Partner, “We are very excited about our alliance with ironSAGE as an Innovation Accelerator working group sponsor. ironSAGE complements our healthcare analytics practice by bringing industry participation, proven methodology and strong leadership. We are now well-positioned to implement innovative solutions that will assist ACOs in maximizing incentive payments through cost savings and quality improvements.”

Ron Garnett, Executive Director of ironSAGE, added, “Our partnership with Prime Dimensions adds significant value to the ACO working group. With one-third of the participating ACOs having dropped out of the CMS Pioneer program, it is clear that practically every ACO can benefit from better methods for quantifying the quality of health care and the financial risk of managing patients. We look forward to working with Prime Dimensions to develop the performance management tools and information services needed to support ACOs as they navigate the complex process of adapting to a new health care model, while effectively constraining costs and improving population health outcomes.”
