Sg2 to Showcase Growth and Value Solutions at National Accountable Care Organization Conference

Sg2's Expert Intelligence, Reform-Ready Analytics Support Organizations in the Accountability Era

SKOKIE, IL--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - Sg2, a health care intelligence and information services company, will exhibit at the National Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Summit on June 27-28 in Washington, DC. The company will feature its Sg2 EDGE Growth Planning System and the Sg2 INSIGHT Clinical Performance Management System -- metric-driven solutions that help organizations improve quality, reduce costs and prioritize smart growth and performance initiatives in the accountability era.

Pursuing formal ACO designation is the right strategy for some organizations, but not all. With the passage of health care reform legislation, new proposed ACO regulations and the emerging spectrum of incentives, there has been an increased focus on measurement and analytics, risk assumption and clinical integration. This shift has caused organizations to explore performance-driven, analytics-informed and value-based delivery models, including bundled payment, episode of care-based payment and traditional ACO.

During the National ACO Summit, Sg2 representatives will discuss how organizations can differentiate themselves with Sg2 expert-designed proprietary intelligence, metrics, indices and benchmarks. Visitors at Sg2's booth will have the opportunity to:

  • See a demonstration of Sg2's disease-based systems for smart growth planning and clinical value improvement
  • Learn how the Sg2 Value Index™ is the bond rating equivalent for clinical performance
  • Uncover which key performance metrics to monitor in the accountability era
  • Discover how analytics and intelligence help develop an integrated System of CARE (Clinical Alignment and Resource Effectiveness) as the foundation for accountability

"In today's reform environment, high performers will apply a rigorous approach to strategy and accountability for care. Metrics are only part of the equation," says Sg2 President Steve Lefar. "Sg2's growth and value analytics, intelligence and expert guidance help organizations optimize their System of CARE to meet the new standards of value."
