Participation in accountable care organizations has more than doubled in the last 12 months, according to recent market data, with the number of commercial and Medicare ACOs expected to reach 500 before the end of 2013.

One-fifth of healthcare organizations see the ACO model — a group of healthcare providers who are rewarded for value rather than volume of care — as having the greatest potential to reduce healthcare cost trend and improve the quality of care delivery, just behind the patient-centered medical home.

The Guide to Accountable Care Organizations lays the groundwork for an ACO program, delivering the following:

  • A comprehensive set of 2012 ACO benchmarks from 200 companies;
  • A framework for clinical integration, a key ACO prerequisite that puts participating providers on the same performance and payment page;
  • Guidelines for physician-led ACOs, a model that has outpaced hospital-led ACOs since accountable care organizations emerged on the healthcare scene a few years ago.

Download a preview of the "Guide to Accountable Care Organizations."

Answers to more than 45 critical FAQs on accountable care are provided.

Chapter 1: 2012 Healthcare Benchmarks: Accountable Care Organizations
Chapter 2: Blueprint for ACO Success
Chapter 3: Challenges, Risks and Opportunities in the ACO Model

Applying the best practices contained in the Guide to Accountable Care Organizations will help payors and providers build a foundation of accountable care that will improve health outcomes, help to bend the cost trend and boost both patient and physician satisfaction.
