ACOs: Biggest accountable care organizations participating in surveys 2011 to 2015 (Modern Healthcare)

Modern Healthcare has published 5 annual editions of an “Accountable Care Organizations Survey,” which includes a list of the ACOs that participated in each survey along with the number of covered lives and participating physicians.  I thought it would be interesting to compare the results over time.  Please note that the following comments pertain only to those ACOs that participated in the survey, roughly 25 or so per year.  There are many more ACOs out there.

Trinity Health (Livonia, MI)

  • ACO formed June 2005; another ACO formed July 2014
  • 1,578,938 covered lives in 2015 (#1 in the 2015 survey)

Advocate Physician Partners (Oak Brook, IL)

  • ACO formed May 1995
  • 350,000 covered lives in 2011 (#1 in the 2011 survey)
  • 445,000 covered lives in 2012 (#2 in the 2012 survey)
  • 553,000 covered lives in 2013 (#1 in the 2013 survey)
  • 609,000 covered lives in 2014 (#1 in 2014 survey)
  • 729,000 covered lives in 2015 (#2 in 2015 survey)

Partners HealthCare (Boston)

  • ACO formed in December 2011
  • 500,000 covered lives in 2012 (#1 in the 2012 survey)
  • 550,000 covered lives in 2013 (#2 in the 2013 survey)
  • 550,000 covered lives in 2014 (#2 in 2014 survey)
  • Not on list for 2015 — did not participate?

Allina Health (Minneapolis)

  • ACO formed in January 2012
  • 250,000 covered lives in 2012 (#3 on 2012 survey)
  • 331,388 covered lives in 2013 (#3 in 2013 survey)
  • 331,388 covered lives in 2014 (#3 in 2014 survey) — yes, it is a little odd that their number is exactly the same as the previous year
  • Not on list for 2015 — did not participate?
