Today my publisher announced release of The ACO Survival Guide: First Edition. It has been a work of earnest effort as I dove into the depths of ACO regulations and emerge with valuable and useful information for Accountable Care Organizations with insights on the move from fee-for-service to pay-for-performance and accountability.
We are in an era of challenging healthcare transformation with the goals of better care for individuals, better population health, and lower costs. ACO legislation was enacted by the Affordable Care Act that provided CMS with the opportunity to enter into agreements with voluntary Physician Groups that care for Medicare beneficiaries.
So, today is the release of the 1st product but the work doesn't stop here. I am once again in the depths of regulations working on a training video that describes the calculations and metrics that shape how Accountable Care Organizations can share in savings provided to Medicare on the One-Sided or Two-Sided Tracks.
More to come!
