ACCOUNTABLE CARE: Competitive Market for Talent is Biggest Challenge in Recruiting

By Staff Reporters

DEFINITION: An accountable care organization (ACO) is a group of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers that work together on your care. Their goal is to give you — and other people on Medicare — better, more coordinated treatment. The largest effort in payment innovation in Medicare is a portfolio of accountable care organization (ACO) programs that include the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP), the Next Generation model, and Comprehensive End Stage Renal Disease model. But drawbacks include limited choice as some patients will have trouble finding doctors outside of a specific group. The shortage of options could lead to higher patient costs. And, referral restrictions as ACOs provide doctors incentives to refer to specialists within the group.
