How to predict if your ACO pilot project will succeed

Thomson Reuters has published a white paper that identifies and describes four indicators which should be tracked to predict the success of an accountable care organization pilot project.  These four indicators are:

  • How many attributed members are there?
  • What are the current ACO member utilization and payments (both in-network and out-of-network)
  • Analysis of the opportunity to reduce utilization and service unit costs
  • Analysis of ACO baseline and payer financial terms
