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.
