Accountable Care Organizations Getting More Scrutiny

A number of independent practice associations (IPAs) and other physician organizations – PHOs, multi-specialty medical groups and hospitals have created new accountable care organizations.

Because we produce the National Directory of Physician Organizations, we naturally are following ACO developments.

ACOs are very much top-of-mind as ACO numbers grow. And with that awareness comes increased attention.

We have been tracking the developments and have posted some news on ACOs beyond new launches on our Twitter feed – @MCIC

If you have in interest in ACO developments following are links to a few of those posts just as an FYI:
