Wednesday July 9th, 2014 our guest is former Director of the Office of the National Coodinator for HealthIT, Dr. Farzad Mostashari. Since leaving ONC, he's been busy as a Visiting Fellow for Economic Studies at the Brookings Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform where his work centered on 'helping clinicians improve care and patient health through health IT, focusing on small practice transformation by developing innovative payment models that can better support these types of practices.'

Meanwhile Dr Mostashari in concert with healthcare reform advisor to President Obama, and Venrock Partner Bob Kocher has been actively baking an ACO management company who's mission is to support - if not stmulate - physician led accountable care collaborations. Aledade launched June 18th, 2014 to much 'physician friend fanfare'; follow on twitter via @AledadeACO. The company describes itself as follows:

'Aledade ACOs are networks of primary care physicians who band together to deliver coordinated care to their patient populations. They operate under a payment structure designed to reward patient outcomes rather than solely paying for tests, procedures, and hospitalizations.

Join Dr. Phil Marshall and me for an exploration of the company's business model, its principal market mission and managerial platforms.
