What distinguishes a high performing Accountable Care Organization (ACO) from a low performing one? Is there a list of key ingredients that can predict success?
While the answers to these questions are not simple, it is important for any value-based organization to understand what the right levers are that impact the greatest change for their populations, reduce unnecessary spending, and provide the highest quality of care. ACOs need to consider not only the patient population they are serving, but the entire market including provider network selection, health system saturation, and geographic landscape.
