Experienced ACO Leaders on 4 Key Strategies for Success

Arcadia will be exhibiting at Booth G, and we invite you to book a one-on-one consultation with healthcare leaders who have deep ACO experience.

  • Before leading Arcadia’s clinical strategy, chief medical officer Rich Parker, MD was the medical director and chief medical officer for the 2,200-physician Beth Israel Deaconess Care Organization.  At BIDCO, he oversaw the evolution of the physician network from a fee-for-service payment system to a nationally recognized global payment pioneer Accountable Care Organization.
  • Arcadia chief operating officer Heather Trafton, MBA, PA-C just joined us from Steward Health Care Network (SCHN), one of the largest risk-bearing provider organizations and ACOs in the country.  SCHN operates in 11 states and serves over 2.1 million paneled lives.  At SCHN, Heather led network-wide performance on value-based contracts as the senior vice president and chief operating officer for national operations.

Heather, Dr. Parker, and other subject matter experts on our team will be available for consultations on a variety of topics, including four important strategies for success as an ACO:

  • Building an effective, accurate, and efficient risk adjustment program
  • Reducing admissions and ED utilization for ambulatory-sensitive conditions
  • Reducing readmissions and improving post-acute care coordination
  • Reducing network leakage
