Description of Fellowship
This summer Ali worked for State Senator Richard Moore, Chairman of the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing. The state is moving to pass significant legislation on provider payment reform, including the promotion of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) as a prominent delivery and payment system. Ali studied the new Medicare program being set up to similarly promote the formation of ACOs as well as private sector ACO models in order to help determine what an ACO system in the Commonwealth might look like. He also included in his research an analysis of the testimonies regarding setting up ACOs in the state from the broad spectrum of stakeholders in the health care sector.
