  • Introduce the LAN approach to “population-based payment” and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)
  • Identify key lessons from purchasers’ initial efforts to implement ACOs in target markets

Listen and learn as LAN members participate in a panel discussion on March 23 to gain purchaser perspectives on ACO strategies. During this presentation, David Lansky, LAN Guiding Committee member and CEO at the Pacific Business Group on Health, discusses the important elements of ACO design and purchaser perspectives on the current ACO market. Jeff White, Director of Health Care Strategy and Policy at The Boeing Company, then discusses Boeing’s health care profile, direct ACO contracting model and plan structure, and lessons learned. Lastly, David Lansky shares lessons learned and success metrics of major employers in the San Francisco health care system that are engaged with ACOs. The presenters entertain questions and comments from the audience on topics such as employer requirements to integrate primary care, behavioral health care, or specialized care management for high cost, high need plan members, contracting mechanisms with ACOs, and communications between managed care organizations, providers, and employees with ACOs.


To achieve the goal of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people, the U.S. health care system must substantially reform its payment structure to incentivize quality, health outcomes, and value over volume. The Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) was established as a collaborative network of public and private stakeholders, including health plans, providers, patients, employers, consumers, states, federal agencies, and other partners within the health care community.
