Accountable Care


As the most advanced accountable care organization (ACO) model, Next Generation ACO has its appeal. However, it is the riskiest model, and one ACO explains why it decided to stay with the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
At the spring live meeting of the ACO & Emerging Healthcare Delivery Coalition in Scottsdale, Arizona, attendees heard presentations and participated in workshops that discussed better integration of care, improved use of technology, and the future of healthcare and the Affordable Care Act.
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.
