ACOs: Stuck in the Wrong Conversation?



A shared concern has begun to emerge from accountable care organization optimists and skeptics alike: that getting too deep into the conversations around ACOs may be more of a distraction than their organizations can afford.

Yes, I agree the question isn't "should we," rather it's "how should we." Lately, I've been reading many perspectives on ways to address the "how." For example, in the latest issue of Ignite there's an interesting article about the importance of gaining physician buy-in when ramping up to an ACO launch. (https://ignite.optuminsight.com/archive/whats-next-for-acos/) Patient attribution seems to be one of the biggest concerns, so I wonder how organizations are addressing this when considering an ACO model.
