Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 29, 2012
Becker's Hospital Review is pleased to highlight 80 accountable care organizations across the country. The list includes ACOs of various scopes and sizes, between a variety of providers and payors, including healthcare systems, medical groups, private insurers, and state and federal health plans.
Today's focus on quality improvement, cost reduction and population health management has propelled ACOs to the forefront of the healthcare industry's agenda. The model has proliferated in the past three years, especially. Commercial insurers are strategically turning to ACOs to reign in costs and transition from volume- to value-based reimbursement. The Medicare Shared Savings Program, part of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, has also driven the formation of ACOs. In the past six months, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid named 32 Pioneer ACOs and the first 27 ACOs to participate in the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
