Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), signed into law in 2010, created accountable care organizations (ACOs) which are made up of groups of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers who come together voluntarily to provide coordinated, high quality care to Medicare patients.

The goal is to ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, obtain the appropriate care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors.

With the fee-for-service model being disrupted, we help providers with counsel in meeting the sweeping legal, financial and operational changes required to succeed and collaborate in this model of care.
