Early benchmarks in ACO development

The Healthcare Intelligence Network has produced a free white paper [registration required] on how ACOs – accountable care organizations – are evolving in the health care provider arena.  The survey reflects data from February 2011.  Some highlights include:

  • 14% of respondents already have a functioning ACO
  • one-third of the ACOs reported are hospital-administered
  • one-half of the ACOs reported took anywhere from a year to a year and a half to launch
  • 40% of reported ACOs have shared savings built in to their reimbursement plan
