2017 Medicare Shared Savings Results!

Mary Washington Health Alliance is a physician led, physician governed integrated network of over 430 physicians covering more than 80,000 lives throughout the Rappahannock region of Virginia, between Richmond and Washington D.C. We are excited to announce our ACO Performance in the Medicare Shared Saving Program (MSSP) for 2017!

The broad reach of physician leadership and governance over our MSSP Program demonstrated how effective Population Health Management can be adopted successfully. These Population Health management strategies include incorporating evidence-based information more quickly into patient diagnosis and treatment, engaging patients and families more directly in care, delivering higher levels of team-based care, and providing more-transparent cost and quality data to physicians and other providers.

As the country moves away from fundamental fee-for-service payments, successful ‘interdependence between hospitals and physicians’ becomes necessary in defining a clinically integrated delivery system that gets reimbursed for keeping the community healthy.
