The Many Journeys to Accountable Care: 4 Case Studies

In a new report from Premier Research Institute for the Commonwealth Fund, the journey of four health systems is chronicled in their adoption and implementation of accountable care. The systems studied were:

  • AtlantiCare [New Jersey]
  • Fairview Health Services [Minnesota]
  • Memorial Healthcare System [Florida]
  • Presbyterian Healthcare Services [New Mexico]

The report looks at how each organization decided to pursue accountable care, assessing the internal environment, market characteristics, and payer mix. Also shared are implementation status, successful implementation strategies, and challenges faced by the systems.

Finally, policy implications are highlighted as well. Transition to accountable care requires an extensive investment, while the financial returns are not likely to be realized quickly.
