New ASA Ad Hoc Committee on ACOs

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

With the increasing interest in and emphasis on accountable care organizations (ACOs) as a potential model for recognizing savings under Medicare, ASA President Alexander A. Hannenberg, M.D. has identified a task force to address this issue in anticipation of a CMS proposed rule prior to year end.  Under the direction of Dr. Norm Cohen, this group will serve as ASA’s experts on ACOs and will work closely with the Washington staff to help formulate our position and develop relevant information for the membership.  The remaining members of the task force include Amr Abouleish, M.D., M.B.A., Arthur Boudreaux, M.D., Richard Dutton, M.D., M.B.A., Patrick Giam, M.D., James Hicks, M.D., Robert Johnstone, M.D., Sachin Kheterpal, M.D., M.B.A., Asa Lockhart, M.D., M.B.A., Gerald Maccioli, M.D., Douglas Merrill, M.D., M.B.A., Mark Neuman, M.D., Mike P. Schweitzer, M.D., M.B.A., Stan Stead, M.D., M.B.A., and Rebecca Twersky, M.D., M.P.H.  Look for information in the future from this important new ad hoc committee.
