Description: Once health care providers have demonstrated the ability to reach quality performance targets and generate surplus in a shared savings pool, they may consider progressing to a shared risk arrangement in which they become financially responsible for a portion of any deficit in the savings pool. This typically allows them to access a higher percentage of any savings generated. It also requires careful consideration to avoid threatening the viability of the organization. This short take video will describe risk mitigation strategies including creation of appropriate risk reserves.
