Case Study Brief

Starting Small to Save Big:Selecting and Sequencing Initiatives Wisely

BACKGROUND When HackensackUMC began considering ACO adoption in 2011, value-based payments were not well understood nor widely accepted. However, the system believed that accountable care participation would support its long-term goals. Thus, in 2012, HackensackAlliance ACO (“Hackensack”) was created based on three underlying principles: 1) all providers would commit to changing practice patterns to improve quality, efficiency, and eventually generate savings; 2) the ACO would be treated as a clinical laboratory for testing value-promoting practices rather than as a for-profit entity; and 3) shared savings would be used to recoup all financial startup costs before making distributions. This three-part vision of behavior change, continual learning, and financial responsibility has informed the ACO’s on-going strategy

Organizational Culture associated with provider satisfaction

Explore this article prepared by the University of Utah and shared by community member, Sarah Woolsey, “I found the description of a hierarchical culture to be potentially adaptive to PCMH and success in a ACO type environment from more traditional “family clan” culture that existed in some clinics. Assessment and awareness of culture is critical to adaptation and change. This is a gap in many clinic transformation efforts and is not necessarily in the quiver of the usual PCP practice.”

From Triple to Quadruple Aim

Care of the Patient Requires Care of the Provider

ABSTRACT The Triple Aim—enhancing patient experience, improving population health, and reducing costs—is widely accepted as a compass to optimize health system performance. Yet physicians and other members of the health care workforce report widespread burnout and dissatisfaction. Burnout is associated with lower patient satisfaction, reduced health outcomes, and it may increase costs. Burnout thus imperils the Triple Aim. This article recommends that the Triple Aim be expanded to a Quadruple Aim, adding the goal of improving the work life of health care providers, including clinicians and staff.
