Medicare Shared Savings Program Changes Bring Incentives to Form Accountable Care Organizations

First few Article Sentences

The Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) brought many changes to the health care system along with the sanction of a wide variety of delivery reforms. One of the most prominent delivery models now recognized by the federal government is the formation of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).

ACOs seek to provide a framework that allows providers to better coordinate care through incentives for quality over quantity. Even with these incentives, most organizations were hesitant to enter into these arrangements, and those that did struggled with the burden of maintaining the model. In 2012, 32 Pioneer Model ACOs formed, but only a handful remained just four years later.
