The Commonwealth Fund Connection is a roundup of recent Fund publications, charts, multimedia, and other timely content.
To enhance understanding of what it takes to become an accountable care organization (ACO) that delivers efficient, high-quality care, a Commonwealth Fund report analyzed 59 hospital-based organizations that were members of a collaborative created to support the transition to accountable care. Premier Research Institute researchers identified characteristics that may be associated with greater readiness to form an ACO, including a strong patient-centered focus, full or partial ownership of a health plan, and positive relationships with providers in the market.
This free 75-minute webinar will provide highlights from that study and feedback from two participating organizations.
