How can you successfully use Accountable Care Organization (ACO) principles and financial incentives to promote health outcomes? Join us to learn of the experience gained by two Health Care Innovations Exchange innovators.

The Montefiore Medical Center's initiative established an infrastructure based on ACO principles and achieved improved management of diabetes, asthma, and congestive heart failure and reduced hospital admissions, readmissions, and medical expenses among several key populations.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan provides financial incentives and supports provider-led quality improvement collaboratives, which have significantly improved quality, reduced costs, and generated a positive return on investment. Innovators from both organizations will share their experience and lessons learned.
