Accountable Care Organizations

As implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act moves forward, CHCF is providing analysis of and insight into models that integrate hospital and physician services to achieve greater accountability and coordination of health care. Specifically, CHCF is working to track the development of integrated approaches to delivery of care and financing; identify regulatory and legislative barriers around the creation of ACOs and help to inform state policy; and determine how ACOs would work in the public sector (community clinics and public hospitals).
