"This program presents a unique opportunity to hear from the population health pros—to receive advice on data integration and care coordination from a top-performing MSSP for quality and savings that anticipates similar results for the upcoming performing year. As CMS and commercial payors place more emphasis on continuum-wide care coordination, including chronic care management and advanced illness, healthcare organizations will be expected to more closely monitor and manage each phase of population health."
