To help payers and providers better estimate the likelihood of success for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), the Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute (HCI3), a not for profit that develops and tests payment innovation models, and IMPAQ International, a research, evaluation, survey and technical assistance firm, have teamed up to develop an online calculator.
IMPAQ is examining the design, implementation, and outcomes of the 22 Comprehensive Technical Assistance Centers. This review includes the Content Centers and Regional Centers, both important sources of technical assistance for state education agencies (SEAs).
In 2001, IMPAQ International was founded by two people, Jake and Sharon Benus, in a Baltimore basement. Watch "Our Story" to learn more about how our organization started.
IMPAQ International recently released a roster of technical experts selected to assist the company in developing and presenting recommendations on a quality performance strategy for the Comprehensive End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Care Initiative, a Medicare payment model being piloted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
