A Good Primer on Accountable Care Organizations

In anticipation of MTBC’s upcoming webinar on Accountable Care Organizations, I’d highly recommend reviewing Health Capital’s “Accountable Care Organization Series: Why Do We Need ACOs.” The series does a nice job explaining the history and basic principles of the concept.

Accountable care organizations (ACOs) – in which health care providers take responsibility for a defined patient population, coordinate their care across settings and are held to benchmark levels of quality and cost have started forming across the country. As ACOs appear to be gaining momentum, it is becoming clear that Electronic Health Record systems will play a major role in making the ACO model a reality.
Read the series and attend the webinar. You’ll be glad you did.
