As the number of public and private accountable care organizations nears 500, participants are fine-tuning the ACO model. In the few years since the ACO model entered healthcare's consciousness, administration has shifted from hospital-led to physician-only leadership to PHO-helmed ACOs.
ACO participation by skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and home health providers also has spiked from 2012 to 2013.
Those are just two findings documented in 2013 Healthcare Benchmarks: Accountable Care Organizations, HIN's third annual compendium of metrics and benchmarks on ACOs.
This 60-page report, now in its third year, delivers actionable data from 138 healthcare companies who completed HIN's third annual ACO readiness assessment conducted in August 2013.
