As the financial model for healthcare shifts to paying for performance/value, the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) will secure a larger role as the provider type to deliver value-based care. ACOs are built on a collaborative care approach, and investment in technology will facilitate better patient-doctor communications and transform consumer care experience. Parks Associates estimates PCMH- or ACO-recognized practices will manage nearly 40 million U.S. patients by 2015, doubling the number from 2014. This panel looks at the challenges and opportunities that ACOs face in delivering patient-centered care and the best practices to proactively engage patients.
