Cornerstone Health Enablement Strategic Solutions in High Point, Triad HealthCare Network in Greensboro, and WakeMed Key Community Care in Raleigh were identified by Becker’s Hospital Review as among the ‘100 ACOs to Know’ nationwide. This is the fifth year for the listing, which is based on quality and cost performance, participation in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Next Generation Model, the Pioneer Model or advanced tracks of the Medicare Shared Savings Program as well as if the organization has recently established new commercial agreements.
According to January 2016 data from Leavitt Partners, ACOs cover approximately 28.3 million lives in this country and continue to experience rapid growth.
The North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS), through its work spearheading the Toward Accountable Care Consortium and Initiative, offers valuable resources for those practices exploring alternative payment models like ACOs. Learn more here.
