Accountable Care • Medical Homes • Bundled Payments • Coordinated Care • Integrated Systems

Accountable care organizations have proliferated over the past few years, and the pace is about to quicken. ACOs nationwide have created new organizations and governance structures, innovative new clinical and IT infrastructure, and an alignment of physicians and other providers that could give them a tremendous competitive edge in the days and years ahead.

Private ACOs have already generated impressive outcomes and deep savings, and spawned health insurance products and narrow provider networks that are challenging traditional health plans. And the mixed results from CMS's preliminary report cards on its Pioneer and MSSP ACOs are unlikely to dampen industry enthusiasm.

ACO Business News provides reliable business intelligence on ACOs and expert insight into questions such as:

  • What outcomes and savings results led UnitedHealth Group to commit $50 billion to accountable care by 2017?
  • Why are some physicians going it alone, forming ACOs that exclude hospitals and health systems in favor of a more nimble organization that can negotiate with all players?
  • What impact are ACOs likely to have on health plans and pharma companies?
  • Why are states like North Carolina choosing ACOs rather than managed care plans to serve their Medicaid populations?
  • Why did MSSPs see such wide variability in start-up costs?
  • Why aren’t specialty pharmacy providers ready to partner with ACOs on integrated data and population health management services?
  • How do insurers with value-based provider contracts avoid sharing savings multiple times for the same patient?
  • How are ACO-based insurance products performing in the market?
  • What strategies are small medical groups in CMS’s Medicare Shared Savings Program using to hit savings and quality targets?
  • Where do specialized ACOs fit in that focus on areas like pediatrics, oncology and end-stage renal disease?
