Truckload Carriers Association Announces Division Winners in 2013 National Fleet Safety Awards

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) January 13, 2014

Since the mid-1970s, the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) has been recognizing the safest fleets in North America through its National Fleet Safety Awards. Sponsored by Great West Casualty Company, the awards honor trucking companies that demonstrate a superior commitment to safety and accident reduction. Eighteen companies have been selected as division winners for the 2013 competition and will now attempt to capture one of two grand prizes.

“In addition to focusing the spotlight on companies that work hard to achieve stellar safety records, these awards give us a glimpse of how well the industry is performing as a whole, said Jerry Waddell, CDS, chairman of TCA’s Safety & Security Division and the safety director for Cargo Transporters, Inc., of Claremont, North Carolina. “With the continued decrease in the total contest fleet vehicle accident ratio, it demonstrates the forward safety thinking that our carrier members exhibit on a daily basis when it comes to their day-to-day operations.”

Companies applying for the National Fleet Safety Awards have completed the first of a two-step process. First, their accident frequency per million miles driven was calculated for each of six mileage-based divisions (listed below). The top three division winners were selected and have been audited by an independent expert to verify their accident frequency numbers.

The division winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony to be held during TCA’s Annual Convention, March 23-26, 2014, at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas. They will also be recognized during TCA’s Safety & Security Division Annual Meeting, May 18-20, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch in St. Louis, Missouri.

All division winners are now eligible to compete for two grand prizes, one in the “less than 25 million annual miles” category and one in the “25 million or more annual miles” category. To win the grand prize, companies will be judged on their overall safety programs, both on- and off-highway, including employee driver/independent contractor selection procedures, training, supervision, accident investigation, inspection and maintenance of equipment, and outside activities including general highway safety.

As with the division winners, the two grand prize winning companies will be honored at an awards ceremony to be held first during TCA’s Annual Convention and then again during TCA’s Safety & Security Division Annual Meeting.

Below are the names of the 2013 top divisional winners based on low accident frequency ratios per million miles. Companies are listed according to the order that they placed within each category.

Regus Advisors Launch ACO Division

Dallas TX (PRWEB) September 21, 2012

Regus Advisors Inc., announced today the launch of its new division for Accountable Care Organization (ACO).

Daryl Palmer, Managing Partner for Regus Advisors leading the division stated, “If you do things right, then you’ll have engaged physicians delivering value-base services, receiving the benefits of value-based purchasing, The ultimate goal is to care for patients more effectively and to improve care.” The Regus Advisors system of operating and financial management controls designed for ACO control addresses all these issues and more including Medicare Shared Savings.

The Regus Advisors ACO management installation system accounts for the following elements within its structure, Payor Bundled Payment, Clinical Financial Alignment, Performance Driven Incentives. Meeting the five (5) key initiatives for healthcare leaders of meaningful use, 1) value based purchasing, 2) re-admission cuts, 3) accountable care, 4) managing bundled payments, and 5) continued expansion of healthcare IT.

With regard to Clinical Care: the Regus program is Patient Centered Delivery with Improved Quality of Care and Physician Integration working with Evidence Based Medicine.

The Competitive Matrix addressed by the process Regus install provides for Physician Alignment, Market Positioning, Capacity Utilization, with Improved Payor Strategy.

The program will be to triple aim of healthcare of their ACO clients as they structure the services provided within the newly formed ACO’s. These will include 1). Improving the patient’s care experience 2). Improve the overall general health of the population served by the ACO and 3). Radically reduce the cost of care, while dramatically improving communication and efficiency within the ACO for impressive care cost reductions, which in turn will reward the ACO members and patients alike.

It is estimated that only some 11% of the marketplace ACO’s were up and running in 2011, and another 57% are expected to come on board by 2014. In terms of the model of the ACO, organizations are equally interested in developing commercial shared savings (43%) and Medicare shared savings (43%). Organizations that are now or planning to be a part of an ACO are interested for a variety of reasons: to engage physicians (56%), because more risk is being shifted to providers (51%), to compete (48%), value-based purchasing (43%), and to provide more resources for clinical integration (43%).

Although rules for accountable care organizations have been finalized, many are operationally unprepared for ACOs and now many see financial risk as a potential stumbling block, therefore Regus Advisors have invested several man years and considerable research to create solutions to navigating the pitfalls of ACO creation, while cognizant of the cost reductions required, as care providers transition from corrective medicine services to preventative medical services which in turn will reward doctors for the improved health of their patient base as opposed to rewards for billing for after the fact corrective recovery services. Regus Advisors will utilize their considerable expertise and experience in advisory division with their management systems and controls by launching a new division, staffed by industry experts, with the specific purpose of assisting physicians, hospitals and health care providers create, manage and control their transition into the required ACO structures mandated under the new health care regulations which will come into effect in 2014.

Regus Advisors will provide a series of sophisticated management and communication protocols and services, utilizing a proprietary operating system of management linked to an advanced financial system of management which will address the needs of this rapidly changing industry. Regus Advisors will utilize their proven industry templates to design, develop, install, implement, teach and train the personnel and services which will fall under the ACO’s domain of influence in relation to patient care, and EHR/EMR controlled access with interoperability and meaningful use.

All of this ultimately provides a detailed and measurable focus on the Patient Experience, providing Enhanced Patient Experiences, Improved Patient Outcomes, Increased Patient Satisfaction which will culminate in an overall reduction of patient anxiety.

Seventy seven percent (77%) of healthcare leaders look for ACO components to include care coordinators or nurse navigators, medical homes (72%), pay for performance (69%), and clinical pathways (69%). The importance of the nurse navigator is gaining recognition for it added value to the financial and care components, but it is surprising that only 45% listed disease registry as a component. Disease Related Groups (DRG) have been a central tool going back a decade. The disease registry is essential to successfully tracking the care of complex patients, assigning accountability to specific physicians, and measuring patient outcomes. Healthcare leaders now believe that within their organizations, an ACO will improve healthcare quality (79%), overall efficiency (70%), population health status (67%), and the patient experience (66%). They are less enthusiastic about ACOs in terms of payer-provider relations, or payer and provider margins.

All of these aspects of variation and need versus want scenarios for individually constructed ACO’s to match the skills of its staff and the requirements of the demographic served, including an aging population, will be addressed in the Regus Advisors ACO program.
