Free Download: Accountable Care Organizations in 2020: Medicare Shared Savings Program ROI Trending Upward

The accountable care organization (ACO) has become the cornerstone of healthcare delivery system and payment reform as the industry moves toward an increased number of value-based reimbursement and care delivery models. As ACO growth maturity continues, the industry is continuing to evaluate their impact on outcomes, cost and quality of care. Over 80 percent of healthcare organizations are now reporting they are part of an ACO, up from 71 percent in 2017 and 34 percent in 2013, according to respondents to the 2020 Accountable Care Organizations Survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network.
