Arrangements Disclosed

The MHACO Board has approved the following arrangements for the waivers authorized by CMS and the OIG pursuant to the “Medicare Program; Final Waivers in Connection with the Shared Savings Program” published on November 2, 2011.

  1. Memorial Hermann Health System (“MHHS”), a participant in the Memorial Hermann Accountable Care Organization (“MHACO”) has approved a modification and the continuation of the program administered by MHMD to advance evidence-based medicine, increase patient satisfaction, and manage the cost of care for the cardiovascular, orthopedic, and hospital medicine service line of MHHS.  The overall focus will remain the same, but the MHACO board approved the specific maximum payments to the physicians and approved minor modifications to the process program dates.
  2. The Memorial Hermann Accountable Care Organization Board has approved a small holdback of the available bonus pool if in-network utilization for the MHACO members remains flat or declines over the baseline. The MHACO Board considered documentation showing evidence that use of the network improved care quality and decreased the overall cost on a per patient basis.  The impact on the bonus pool is aggregate, and does not take into account the utilization of physicians at the individual level.
  3. The Memorial Hermann Health System (“MHHS”), a participant in the Memorial Hermann Accountable Care Organization, will engage MHMD, the Memorial Hermann Physician Network, to administer a program to advance evidence-based medicine, increase patient satisfaction, and manage the cost of care for the orthopedic service line of MHHS. The focus will be total joint replacement, and eligible physicians will be eligible for compensation based upon meeting quality and cost metrics.
  4. The Memorial Hermann Health System (“MHHS”), a participant in the Memorial Hermann Accountable Care Organization, will engage MHMD, the Memorial Hermann Physician Network, to administer a program to advance evidence-based medicine, increase patient satisfaction, and manage the cost of care for the hospitalist services provided at MHHS hospital. The focus will be on services provided by hospitalists, intensivists and anesthesiologists, and eligible physicians will be eligible for compensation based upon meeting quality and cost metrics.
  5. The Memorial Hermann Accountable Care Organization (“MHACO”) will provide to referral coordination service to physicians who participate in MHACO. MHACO will identify preferred providers, utilizing quality, cost and operational efficiency considerations, but will also coordinate referrals to physicians outside the preferred network. The expectation is that this will make the delivery of care more efficient, and will influence patients to utilize physicians with demonstrated quality and efficiency.
  6. The Memorial Hermann Health System (“MHHS”), a participant in the Memorial Hermann Accountable Care Organization (“MHACO”) has engaged the University of Texas Health Science Center (“UTHSC”) to provide academic, professional and administrative services, including the configuration of an ambulatory orthopedic network. Additionally, UTHSC will provide clinical and administrative leadership to advance quality and safety metrics of the orthopedic service line inclusive of a regional leadership structure; supplement and support the orthopedics call coverage requirements of the Hospital emergency departments; provide qualified physician leaders to coordinate the medical direction of local campuses and programs; provide guidance on operating room efficiency and operations to ensure the safest environment possible for patient care where requested; provide guidance on strategic sourcing solutions to improve overall quality of care and value to patients; and provide high quality care.
  7. The Memorial Hermann Health System (“MHHS”), a participant in the Memorial Hermann Accountable Care Organization (“MHACO”) has engaged the MHS Physicians of Texas (“PhyTex”), a certified nonprofit healthcare corporation of which MHHS is the sole member, to provide academic, professional and administrative services, including the configuration of an ambulatory neuroscience network. Additionally, PhyTex will provide clinical and administrative leadership to advance quality and safety metrics of the neuroscience service line inclusive of a regional leadership structure; supplement and support the neuroscience call coverage requirements of the Hospital emergency departments; provide qualified physician leaders to coordinate the medical direction of local campuses and programs; provide guidance on operating room efficiency and operations to ensure the safest environment possible for patient care where requested; provide guidance on strategic sourcing solutions to improve overall quality of care and value to patients; provide high quality care. An initial component of the program will provide financial incentives to neurosurgeons for meeting defined quality and cost metrics.
