What is an ACO?
An Accountable Care Organization, also known as an “ACO,” is a group of providers and other health care professionals who come together to give coordinated high-quality care to their patients.
The goal under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was to improve the healthcare delivery system in order to enhance quality, improve beneficiary outcomes, and increase value of care. Accountable Care Organizations facilitate coordination and cooperation among providers to improve quality care while reducing unnecessary costs.
