From hospital systems to large employers, organizations are increasingly taking on financial risk for the health of populations. Drivers of this trend include the update to the MSSP model, the recent CMS Primary Cares Initiative announcement, the increasing prevalence of the Medicare Advantage model, innovative partnerships in the self-insured employer space, and the proliferation of Medicaid ACOs. Yet while market pressures push organizations toward population risk, they don't necessarily help them succeed: most organizations are struggling to attain or sustain the dual imperatives of high-quality care and cost containment.
