April 18 , 2022 – Please join us for the National Association of Accountable Care Organizations’ Spring 2022 Conference in-person in Baltimore. As with our fall in-person conference, there is an option to participate virtually. The hybrid conference will be hosted on April 28 and 29 at the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor.

Notable sessions include a keynote address from CMS Deputy Administrator and Director of the Center for Medicare Meena Seshamani; an address from CMS Deputy Administrator and Director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation Liz Fowler; a lunch plenary from National Quality Forum President and Chief Executive Dana Safran; multiple sessions on addressing health equity and digital health, and the new ACO REACH Model; and other CMS speakers about the latest in health policy, trends in accountable care models and value-based payment.

Since 2012, ACOs have saved Medicare $13.3 billion in gross savings and $4.7 billion in net savings. Importantly, data show these ACOs continued to provide high-quality care and yield satisfied patients. Today, ACOs care for nearly 20 percent of all Medicare patients and nearly a third of traditional Medicare patients. This document includes highlights of ACO results in 2020.

To ensure the safety of all in-person attendees, NAACOS is requiring participants to be fully vaccinated.

For those unable to be vaccinated, attending the conference virtually is an option. The live webcast includes all of the breakout sessions and plenaries as well as the sponsored breakfasts. Live webcast participants also receive six months of access to the recordings of the sessions so that you don’t miss out on any of the sessions!
