The Health Care Transformation Task Force examined ACOs in Medicare programs to find scalable and generally applicable strategies for success reducing costs and improving care quality.
Creating a high-value culture, engaging in proactive population health management, and implementing an infrastructure that promotes continuous performance improvement were key characteristics of 11 successful accountable care organizations (ACOs) studied.
The greatest driver of future ACO growth will be the success of existing ACOs, as fence-sitting providers will be swayed by participants’ achievements or failure, as well as the positive evolution of the ACO model. This study applies not only to new ACOs considering these arrangements for the first time, but also to those existing ACOs that are considering whether to renew contracts, progress to risk or expand arrangements with additional payers by providing guidance on opportunities to improve.
