Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers who come together voluntarily to provide coordinated, high quality care to their patients. The ACO has become a cornerstone of healthcare delivery system and payment reform by raising the bar on healthcare quality for Medicare Fee-For-Service (FFS) beneficiaries and reducing unnecessary costs. There are now more than 700 ACOs in existence today, by a 2017 SK&A estimate.

How does your organization participate in accountable care organizations? Take HIN's fifth comprehensive survey on ACOs by May 26, 2017 and receive a FREE executive summary of the compiled results. Your responses will be kept confidential.
