Closing Presentation "ACOs and Health IT: True Delivery System Reform or Another Round of Unintended Consequences?"
A fundamental component of the Affordable Care Act is support for the creation of so-called Accountable Care Organizations. Health care information technology will play a critical role in the reform process, perhaps in ways which are not yet well understood. Using the framework and early experience of a local CMS appointed ACO, this session is intended to ask questions and provide examples for how IT efforts might contribute to healthy, disruptive change in improving medical care delivery.
∙ Consider the unintended consequences of the current IT trajectory in supporting medical care delivery in relation to the mandates of the
Affordable Care Act. Consider some opportunities for future IT contributions and what will need to occur for these opportunities to be tapped.
∙ Reflect on the historical contributions of IT in health and how there will necessarily be a shift in IT development in the future in support of
medical care delivery reform.
