'Twas the Night Before 2018

As 2017 comes to a close, we are taking the opportunity in this newsletter to highlight some of our successes and show you the blueprint for the future of the Alliance. 2018 will be a unique year as we formally become part of the NextGen ACO program which we believe will improve our position in this new healthcare model in the years to come. Over the years, we have all felt the impact of the federal government’s ever-changing influence on how we practice medicine. An innovative model such as NextGen ACO gives us a framework to enhance our efforts towards value-based care and be awarded for those efforts.

One of the key tasks for our committee this year has been to streamline communication. Some members felt that, at times, too much information was distributed and at other times maybe not enough information. A large effort was placed in improving the user experience on our website www.mwhealthalliance.com which we wanted to be a place for all members to get up to date information on the Alliance. We encourage all members to visit the website. We love feedback—so please let us know what you think. Also, save the date for our upcoming Annual Meeting at the Fick Center on Tuesday, April 10th.

Another goal for our group was improving the newsletters which come to you quarterly as well as the monthly Medical Director updates from Dr. Lewis. It is our goal to bring you timely information in a succinct and readable manner. By streamlining the communication to these two methods we hope to not overload you with information and continue to enhance the value to our membership.

We have the annual meeting in April which will be very informative on all Alliance efforts but especially as it pertains to the Next Gen ACO. Please make every effort to attend this important meeting.

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
