Accountable Care Organisation Clinical Integration
This Alliance Life Sciences white paper explains that the government's goal in implementing the accountable care organisation (ACO) framework is to reduce healthcare costs, and improve patient access and health status.
The paper discusses the changes affecting medicare reimbursement and the care delivery structure, which will not have an immediate, profound, and transformative effect on medicare and private sector commercial insurance reimbursement practices.
It says the push for accountability in delivering higher-quality care at lower costs will drive significant market changes to healthcare players downstream from life sciences manufacturers.
The paper concludes that ACOs are likely to demand patient information sharing and more granular data from trading partners, which coordinate care for their patients.
