The program will focus on Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and other risk sharing arrangements in healthcare.  You will hear federal and state regulators describe their frameworks for evaluating ACOs and ACO-like arrangements and some of the regulatory challenges.  You will hear from healthcare legal practitioners, administrators and officials regarding the issues and challenges they have to address and overcome to form and operate such entities, as well as some of the challenges for provider organizations that contract with ACOs. These speakers will also take a look at the necessary ingredients for success among ACOs and ACO-like arrangements.  An ample question and answer period is built into the program.
