Julian D. (" "Bo" ") Bobbitt, Jr.

Our Editorial team recently heard Bo Bobbitt present on the topic of accountable care organizations. Based on that experience, we knew that we needed to bring Mr. Bobbit's frank and practical presentation to our Greenbranch Publishing clients. In contrast to untargeted theoretical presentations on this topic, The Medical Practice ACO Blueprint for Success is a practical, non-technical strategic briefing for medical practice leaders on accountable care organizations (ACOs).

It discusses what they are, why and how they will impact your practice, and how to succeed in the accountable care era, whether creating or joining an ACO. You will be given specific tools and strategies from the perspective of physicians and their practices. There are 8 essential elements to an accountable care organization. Do you know what they are?

Julian Bobbitt, Partner from Smith Anderson, is not a new-comer to this topic. He has been working in this area for many years. This presentation is devoted to physicians, administrators, office managers and business managers in the medical practice. Also, consultants who need to ramp up quickly to understand accountable care organizations are welcome to join! Devote just 90-minutes to this audio conference and you'll find that his assessment of the landscape (and his no-nonsense presentation style) will get you and your practice up-to-speed on this important topic.

Listen in to learn the following:
  • The 8 essential elements to succeed...How to quickly size up whether an accountable care organization option has these elements -- or could achieve these elements
  • Understanding of the increased role of systems-based care and how to maximize its benefits for you and your patients.
  • Negotiation skills when confronted with an ACO contract. Ability to identify traps and opportunities.
  • How each specialty can maximize their contribution to, and thus reward from an ACO.
