The Bridge to Accountable Care Organizations

One of the key elements of healthcare reform has been to encourage hospitals, health systems, physicians, and health plans to integrate resources to provide more efficient, cost-effective healthcare. With gaps in guidance on what exactly an ACO should be, healthcare organizations have forged ahead with a myriad of strategies around clinical integration to create the foundations for accountable care.

In this HealthLeaders Media Breakthroughs report, leading hospital systems— Monarch HealthCare, Sisters of St. Francis Hospital and Health Systems, The Nebraska Medical Center, and Palmetto Health—share insights and lessons learned that will help you:

  • Define which structures of an accountable care organization may best apply to your health system or medical group practice
  • Identify key investments that must be made in information technology, care coordination, and post-acute care
  • Apply physician-alignment knowledge from a variety of settings, from integrated to voluntary staff
