Notes: From an article entitled, “Characteristics of Home-Based Care Provided by Accountable Care Organizations,” by Robert E. Mechanic, MBA, Jennifer Perloff, PhD, Amy R. Stuck, PhD, RN, Christopher Crowley, PhD. In a 2019 ACO survey, 40 out of 151 responding ACOs reported formal home-visit initiatives serving high-need, high-cost patients.
