​​Accountable Care Organizations (ACO)

Healthcare organizations are pondering a wide range of potential models for devising and implementing effective and sustainable alliances for achieving increasingly coordinated and accountable care. Tying reimbursement to both clinical quality and the total cost of care leaves ample room for a number of potential approaches for implementation, and the new operating models are challenging organizations to identify appropriate strategies that introduce the requisite changes while preserving their distinctive competencies and core values, both individual and shared.

Edgewater Healthcare Consulting has developed an AC​O framework,​ or way of thinking about your ACO implementation that has been lauded by our customers and the industry alike. This framework provides a platform for operationalizing accountable care, allowing our clients to focus on areas of need and achieving measured success at each stage in their evolution to an effective accountable care organization.​​​
