Did you know that Florida hosts one of the best events in the ACO space? The Florida Association of Accountable Care Organizations (FLAACOs) organizes the event every year, which attracts healthcare leaders from across the nation to discuss value-based care.

In preparation for the event, we wanted to give you an idea of what you can expect and highlight a few sessions and exhibitors we are particularly excited about.

The first question you may be asking yourself is “Why should I attend a small regional event like FLAACOs?” 

How Attending FLAACOs 2022 Can Benefit You

Attending FLAACOs 2022 will provide you with the opportunity to gain insight into the Florida ACO marketplace and how healthcare is changing for millions of patients. 

Additionally, FLAACOs will maximize your ability to network and develop relationships with other healthcare executives and industry leaders. They can teach you how to overcome challenges and reveal opportunities that can make a difference in your business.

An Opportunity to Build Relationships with VBC Industry Leaders

You might be wondering who will be in attendance at this year’s conference. Based on the official FLAACOs website, you can expect to see professionals and thought leaders from any of the following categories:

  • Accountable care organizational leaders, administrators & partners

6 Sessions Healthjump is Excited About and Why

1. Our Future is within REACH! Success in the Next Generation of Value-Based Care

Sanjay Doddamani, Co-Founder & CEO of UpStream.

Since REACH has different data requirements than Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), being able to understand the nuances is important when considering this program. Healthjump is interested in understanding how ACOs are documenting the information needed by this program so that we can better help our customers in this area of data acquisition.

2. Health Equity – VBC Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health. Will it Really Impact the Benchmark?

Karen Isaacs, Family Physician at New Hanover Regional Medical Center, Novant Health, Todd Stivland, MD, CEO of Bluestone Physician Group, Ed White, Partner at Nelson Mullins, Mike Segal, Attorney at Nelson Mullins, and Balford Francis, Executive Director of New Hanover Health Advantage, Novant Health.

Health equity has the potential to change our healthcare system - if enough people work towards it. Healthjump looks forward to learning more about health equity and how we can better assist our customers in helping patients achieve their full health potential. 

3. The Next Phase(s) of ACO Success: The Most Successful ACOs Continue to Seek New Opportunities to Improve Care and Reduce Cost

Leon Wisniewski, Co-Founder & CIO of Health Cost Labs, Brian Kern, Esq., CEO of Deep Risk Management, Bridget Roberts, CEO of Physicians Group Services, and Alejandro Perez-Trepichio, MD, Millennium Physician Group.

This panel will likely dive into innovative concepts around price transparency and specialty care. Dane Rasmuson, one of our Healthjump Sales Executives, believes it’s crucial to explore the tactics of the most successful ACOs. Learning what they are doing will help Healthjump find clever ways to be a better resource for our customers.

4. Creating Mental Health Integration and a New Front Door. Understanding the True Impact of Behavioral Health to Traditional Health Outcomes

Emilie Ventura, Behavioral Health Care Manager at Optum, Kim Ho, Director of Sales at evolvedMD, Steve Biljan, Co-Founder & Managing Partner of evolvedMD, and Jeff Spight, CEO & Co-Founder of Mind 24-7.

Calli Styczynski, a Business Development Representative here at Healthjump is invested in exploring mental health organizations and is excited to gain more knowledge on how she, and the company as a whole, can better serve those types of patients.

6. Remote Patient Monitoring On the Go! A Revolutionary System for Monitoring, Data, and Cost Savings That Puts Patients First!

There’s been a huge push for remote patient monitoring (RPM) lately, which is why we look forward to learning how Healthjump can help with data when it comes to monitoring patients outside the walls of healthcare facilities.
