About (PCM) Prime Care Managers ACO
In January 2017, PCM was designated as an Accountable Care Organization. As an independent primary care ACO, our primary care providers were assigned 7,500 Medicare Beneficiaries in our initial year. These Beneficiaries are scattered across the northeast Texas and southern Arkansas region. Approximately 50 primary care providers represented by 13 unique taxable entities participated in our initial filing.

Since then, we have grown to include additional independent entities adding another 60 primary care providers and some specialists. Our total independent physician participation now exceeds 150 with 15 unique entities. Our expected assigned Medicare Beneficiaries is expected to exceed 15,000 in 2018. As an ACO, our primary care providers are delegated the responsibility, by CMS, to manage the total cost of care for our assigned Beneficiaries regardless of where and by whom it is provided. We believe an independent and unaffiliated physician organization provides the greatest hope for accountability and value to our beneficiaries.

CLAIMS & RISK DATA
As an Accountable Care Organization we receive monthly updates of detailed claims information from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for assigned beneficiaries. The cost and utilization data is specific by data of service for each claim encounter submitted to CMS. The claim data is comprehensive to all information provided on a submitted claim including, provider, facility, procedure, diagnosis, and supplies for all Part A, B and D claims.

The purpose for receiving claims information is to give an ACO insight into the cost and utilization practices of area providers. To some degree we are able to compare specific providers and measure their performance to local, regional and national benchmarks. We are also supplied a means to measure relative risk of a specific beneficiary. In addition to CMS supplying us a Hierarchical Condition Category risk score (HCC) for each beneficiary, we are able, based on diagnostic codes and historical use patterns, to predict risk. Our ability to predict risk allows us to adjust care plans and interventional activity to prevent and better manage future treatment options.

BUILDING A NETWORK
We realize, claims data relative to risk is not the only source for evaluating quality, outcomes and cost of providers. There are many other factors that drive the ability to align providers into high value networks of healthcare delivery. To form an accountable high value network, our ACO will evaluate self-reported data from area providers. The self reported data includes information regarding ownership structure, physician alignment, patient engagement, coverage area, service levels, staffing, clinical pathways, specific clinical performance, risk management and ability to clinically integrate into a value oriented network.

It is our goal as an ACO to work with multiple provider options in the marketplace. It is not our intent to exclude providers who can meet our objectives. Rather, it is our desire to build accountable long-term relationships with providers who continually demonstrate integrated capabilities that add value to Beneficiaries. Our goal is to build sustainable partnerships and grow our capabilities over time.

Risk Management

ACOs require management infrastructure to define populations and mitigate risk by identifying potential health problems before they occur and preventing or planning for ways to reduce unfavorable outcomes. Measured and coordinated processes are centered on reducing hospital and ED utilization, avoiding readmissions, promoting wellness and managing chronic disease.
