Dartmouth Accountable Care Organization Tracking Project, Year 3: Assessing Implementation, Identifying Success Factors, and Supporting Spread


Under previous Commonwealth Fund grants, Dartmouth researchers led by Elliott Fisher, M.D., M.P.H., developed a framework for the timely evaluation of accountable care organizations (ACOs). This project will assess trends in the formation of ACOs. The project team will: 1) develop and field a survey to describe the characteristics of delivery system change associated with ACOs; and 2) conduct interviews and site visits to gain a better understanding of the factors that contribute to the establishment of successful and sustainable ACOs. The overall project will make new and significant contributions to our understanding of how ACO implementation is progressing nationally. An additional two years of support for this important tracking activity will likely be requested.
