These new partnerships are a great step to a more collaborative heath care system in our country. Once the mergers are set in stone and squared away, the establishment of ACOs will benefit each health care system and will be easier to institute thanks to the partnerships. With more resources housed under one roof, collaboration is much more beneficial to patients. I think there is a lot to keep in mind though, in order to have an effective ACO. The health care systems must be on the same page to deliver the best care. A great article by OptumInsight outlines a few key things to keep in mind while establishing their ACO models that all health care systems should take into consideration, especially those that are going through any kind of merger.
