Building a Bridge to Provider Leadership
(L-R) Dr. Sean Hanley, MD, Maine Orthopaedic Center, PA; Roger Pezzuti, MD
The ACO’s Value Oversight Committee, comprised of dyads of clinical and administrative leaders from each of the ACO’s ten regions or hospitals, is a prime example. It’s a transparent forum to engage clinicians and administrators in discussions and decisions about quality performance and healthcare value. Through membership in the committee, providers and administrators work together to identify opportunities and set measurable goals for both utilization and quality. The work of the Value Oversight Committee culminates in the approval of the ACO’s top operational priorities, driving the work of the ACO team and sharpening the focus of providers. Committee members then work with local value oversight committees to communicate and disseminate priorities and strategies to meet them.

Provider leadership extends to the highest levels of decision-making. Two-thirds of the ACO’s Board of Director seats are filled by clinical and administrative leaders of participating hospitals and practices.
Thanks to leadership from our providers and their administrative counterparts, the ACO continues to make solid, measurable progress toward value-based care and the realization of the Quadruple Aim.
