The last year has brought a lot of buzz around Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). But how are they going to manage those patient populations and coordinate care? And what technologies will they need to succeed? We’ve brought together three experts from Boston, a mecca of Pioneer ACOs.
Inspired by a keynote we heard some time back from Mark Smith at California Health Care Foundation, and by the work of organizations such as West Wireless Health Institute, we’re going to push the envelope on how Health 2.0 technologies and the companies using them can actually lower the cost of health care. Here we show new models for care delivery, new Health 2.0 technologies that reduce costs, and new technology models that take advantage of lightweight tools and rapid cycles for development and deployment. We also address alternate funding models that are tailored for a lower cost, faster and more iterative approach in health technology innovation.
