Provider Trends: ACOs Begin to Take Shape

Executive Summary

A new health-care delivery mode that could drastically alter how the industry is run took another significant step forward at the end of March, when the US Department of Health and Human Services issued proposed rules to govern Accountable Care Organizations. ACOs are designed to create strong networks of physicians and hospitals with aligned incentives focused on patient quality of care and costs. To gain some insight on possible future implications of ACOs for the medical device industry, Medtech Insight recently spoke with Ron Wince, president and CEO of the consulting firm Guidon Performance Solutions.
