Guaranteed Medicare Shared Savings Program success
With the rapid transition to risk-based reimbursement, delivering value is no longer just a business goal – it’s a necessity. Health care organizations that deliver quality care at lower cost will emerge as the most successful in this new era of payment reform.
But too many ACO participants lack the real visibility necessary to track – and improve upon – their performance against ACO quality measures. That’s where athenahealth comes in.

We help you achieve ACO quality measuresAchieving high quality scores in the MSSP demands firm, efficient population health management. The athenahealth approach goes far beyond conventional analytics tools, and begins with the patient.
After we stratify your patient population and identify gaps in care, we help you engage each patient by reaching out via email, phone or secure text message. We then surface the right quality measures for care teams at the right time, and provide powerful analytics to track and optimize your clinical outcomes, costs and utilization.
As with all athenahealth services, we continually update our cloud-based software – at no additional charge – and deliver real-time visibility to care teams and health system leaders. You get greater insight into your quality requirements and can deliver against the ACO 33 measures with greater ease.
