Accountable Care Organizations

A report from the Commonwealth Fund indicates that Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) must be firmly centered around primary care, have informed patients and implement payment mechanisms that reward high quality care. Getting back to the basics. I'm encouraged by the good intentions but will wait to see what happens. Primary care is in short supply, educating patients has not been a strong suit for medical care and high quality care has many definitions.
