Considering an ACO? You Need to Start Planning Now

If you’ve read our blogs regarding Medicare’s new ACO model, perhaps you’re wondering how you can get started and how long the process will take. The below chart provides a general overview of what you can expect relative to the typical application process.

It’s important to note that the window for beginning the ACO application process will not open until January 1, 2014.  However, long before that date, you’ll need to have your entity formed, EHR and other software in place, management structure and processes intact, etc.  Therefore, don’t delay – the time to start planning is now!
