Commercial ACOs May Find Footing Where CMS Slips



Healthcare executives aren't waiting for official rules and regs in order to get on with the triple aim of achieving better health for populations, better care for individuals, and lower costs for all. They're plowing ahead and devising their own coordinated care solutions.

It's interesting to consider how things have evolved since the release of those regulations last April. I think they were a good starting point for even better ideas to develop; they got the conversation started, so to speak. John Nackel gave a nice perspective on some of his ideas for an ACO alternative here: http://ignite.optuminsight.com/our-experts/opening-the-door-to-reform/ He speaks to the idea that all stakeholders, including patients, need to be equally engaged toward population health. Patients cannot be passive participants in their health care anymore. But are physicians willing to listen?
