The Accountable Care Organization


An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a care-delivery model in which physicians, specialists, and hospitals are aligned in providing efficient and effective care for a patient population. Instead of the present fragmented, fee-for-service delivery of care, this model emphasizes collaboration of providers accountable for the health status and outcomes of care provided to their panel of patients.
