The 2ndHealthcare Informatics tweet chat took place on Nov. 20, 2014, with The Advisory Board Company as our co-host and accountable care as the topic of choice.
Bill Lynagh, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Crimson at The Advisory Board Company joined HCI Editor-in-Chief, Mark Hagland to talk about accountable care organizations (ACOs) at length with several tweeters. Some of the specific issues discussed were patient attribution, physician culture, data integrity, and the future of government-payer ACOs after the recently released results from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on years 1 and 2 of the Pioneer ACO program.
Below is a recap of the chat. HCI is planning on hosting more tweet chats in 2015. If you have any ideas, please let us know by following @HCInformatics or writing a comment below.
