Summary

Created under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), CMS has begun contracting with Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to provide services for a defined population of Medicare patients. The Final Rule governing the establishment of ACOs was released in October 2011, with the first wave of CMS-contracted ACOs launched in April 2012.

Today, there are an estimated 328 ACOs across the U.S. with some 25 to 31 million patients being affected by this model, and big growth is expected in 2013. Each ACO will need to be armed with technology tools such as EHR, HIE and Patient Portals as a foundation for achieving cost-effective and patient-centric quality of care.

ACOs are about returning patient care to the community of providers. These delivery systems must be physician led and contemplate the full continuum of patient care. Some markets are embracing a holistic range of health providers, while others are more exclusionary.
