How accountable care organizations can prepare for downside risk
from RevCycle Intelligence
Accountable care organizations (ACOs) are part of the foundation of the healthcare industry's transition to value-based care and purchasing. Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), ACOs have realized clinical and financial improvements. Organizations in the Medicare's largest ACO program average a quality performance score north of 90 percent, and CMS estimates that the program saved about $954 million from 2013 through 2015. However, the federal government says ACOs could do more to reduce costs and improve care quality. And the organizations can achieve the goals through downside financial risk.
