Medicare Pioneer ACO Year One
Lessons from a Top Performer

Pioneer ACOs have earned over $76 million in bonus payments by providing coordinated, quality care, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The keys to success in year one of the Medicare Pioneer ACO for Monarch HealthCare, as shown in this HINfographic, were engaging vulnerable patients in the ACO and developing a strategy to align non-contracted physicians. Monarch HealthCare was the third most successful pioneer ACO in terms of cost savings and the second most successful in beating the trend.

This HINfographic also identifies the greatest ACO implementation challenges, metrics to evaluate the ACO, members of the care team, time needed to implement an ACO, and much more.
