Amount of Shared Savings/Losses:
Performance Year 1 (2017): $5,151,086 in shared savings
Performance Year 2 (2018): To be completed after the conclusion of the performance year
Performance Year 3 (2019): To be completed after the conclusion of the performance year

The proportion of Shared Savings invested in infrastructure, redesigned care processes, and other resources necessary to improve outcomes and reduce Medicare costs for Beneficiaries:
Shared savings will be used to cover operation costs incurred and to support ongoing health care delivery. For example, Doctors Connected and Carilion Clinic have and will continue to upgrade our information technology infrastructure. These upgrades will further improve the coordinated, high-quality care that we provide to all of our patients, including those Medicare beneficiaries with providers participating in the ACO. Also, Doctors Connected and Carilion Clinic have and will continue to provide the necessary tools required to support our dedicated care coordination team. Care coordinators are experienced nurses that partner with patients and providers to better manage the health care needs of patients with chronic conditions. We have found that clinically centered investments such as workflow and performance management tools better enable our team to provide the highest level of care. 

The proportion of Shared Savings distributed to Next Generation ACO Participants and Preferred Providers:
Shared savings will be re-invested to support health care delivery to our ACO enrolled beneficiaries and to fund our ACO’s operational costs. There are currently no shared savings directly distributed to Next Generation ACO Participants and/or Preferred Providers; however, the savings may be used to directly or indirectly support ACO initiatives at Next Generation ACO Participants’ care settings.
