Accountable Care Organizations in 2013: ACO Leadership Shifts to Physician-Hospital Organizations
White Paper Abstract: The number of accountable care organizations led by a physician-hospital organization (PHO) nearly doubled over the last year, according to the third annual ACO survey conducted by the Healthcare Intelligence Network. As the ACO model finds its feet, administration has changed hands from hospitals in 2011 to physician-led in 2012 to PHOs in 2013 a year when the number of public and private ACOs in the country swelled to almost 500. Almost one in three ACOs is PHO-led.
Composition of the popular care delivery model is shifting as well, with hospice, long-term care and home health exhibiting more skin in the ACO game in 2013. For example, the number of ACOs with hospices more than doubled in the last 12 months from 19 percent to 42 percent.
