Each year, KHP is evaluated against national criteria for its services and effectiveness. The preliminary results for 2017 indicate KHP has earned the CAPG 5-Star rating, the highest distinction possible for ACO-type organizations. Final results and the award will be issued in June.
Additionally, during first quarter 2017, KHP leaders were asked to speak at three national conferences: Becker’s in Chicago; Medecision in Austin; and Leader’s Board in Atlanta. The presentations covered KHP’s care management process and quality outcomes, which have resulted in shared savings and other quality indicators among the best in the US. KHP will be sharing about its journey to become a Next Gen ACO during a national teleconference later this month, and has already been invited to invited to speak at the 2018 Becker’s Conference on lessons learned from our first five years, which will be celebrated in June 2017.
