Building a Successful ACO‎

Are you aware of the concept of Accountable Care Organizations? ACOs are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers, who voluntarily agree to deliver high quality coordinated care to Medicare patients.

Coordinated care helps ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, with the goal of avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and avoiding medical errors.

When an ACO succeeds in both delivering high-quality care and spending healthcare budget more wisely, it will share in the savings it achieves for the Medicare program.
