Accountable Care Organizations' Strategies Aimed at Reducing Spending and Improving Quality

The Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) introduced accountable care organizations (ACOs) into the Medicare Program to promote accountability of hospitals, physicians, and other providers for a patient population; coordinate items and services; encourage investment in infrastructure; and redesign care processes for high-quality and efficient service delivery. We will identify ACOs' strategies aimed at reducing spending and improving quality. Specifically, we will describe ACOs' strategies intended to reduce spending and improve care in different service areas, such as hospitals and nursing homes. We will also describe strategies ACOs are using to work with physicians and engage beneficiaries; manage the care of beneficiaries needing high-cost, complex care; address behavioral health and social needs; and use data and technology.
