The Value-Based Care Crossroad: Have ACOs Reached a Tipping Point?

Published in: Healthcare Innovation

Few organizations are broadly better positioned to discuss the necessary elements for ACO success than Premier’s Population Health Management Collaborative, (PHMC) an initiative from the Charlotte, N.C.,-based Premier that helps hundreds of hospitals and tens of thousands of clinicians work together to align, measure and improve population health.

In the MSSP for 2019, 75 percent of Premier’s Population Health Management Collaborative ACOs earned savings for the government. Of those, 44 percent performed well enough to qualify for shared savings payments from Medicare.
