Accountable Care


Accountable care organizations can improve outcomes and patient experience while reducing costs through integrated care and better use of technology.
If accountable care organizations (ACOs) are going to be successful, they need to learn from another and have meetings like the ACO & Emerging Healthcare Delivery Coalition's Spring Live Meeting, being held April 28-29 in Scottsdale, Arizona, to exchange good information, explained Michael Chernew, PhD, co-editor-in-chief of The American Journal of Managed Care. Dr Chernew will also sit on a panel discussion about the future state of healthcare in the United States during the ACO Coalition's meeting.
The top stories in managed care include a recap of Patient-Centered Diabetes Care, the case for the Oncology Medical Home, UnitedHealth leaves Affordable Care Act exchanges in 2 states, and CMS expands alternative payment model for primary care.
In 2012, electronic health record use and participation in accountable care organization or patient-centered medical home initiatives were associated with performing care processes expected to improve healthcare outcomes.
In preparation for the Spring Live Meeting of the ACO & Emerging Healthcare Delivery Coalition, 2 speakers who will be at the meeting will participate in 2 30-minute tweetchats.
