6 ACO types, 6 different ways to transition to value-based care

 In News

Accountable care organizations (ACOs) vary widely in terms of ownership, patient care emphasis and organizational structure, according to a new report from Leavitt Partners.

The report identified six core types of structurally distinct ACOs, which the research team said can help serve as a resource for policymakers to revise ACO programs and provide direction to vendors to create services and products that will facilitate the transition to value-based care.

“We believe that different types of ACOs have different opportunities to achieve the triple aim and that one size does not fit all when it comes to managing patient populations,” the report states. “The suggested opportunities and challenges are based on general observations and do not apply to every ACO in each category, but they do provide directional guidance.”
