Accountable Care Organizations and the Impact on Supply Chain

The emergence of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) in healthcare is changing both the care models and the business models of health care systems. An Accountable Care Organization is a group of coordinated providers—either an entity or program—in which reimbursement for care is tied to quality metrics and reductions in the total cost of care for an assigned population of patients. These new shared-risk care models are aligning incentives for both physicians and hospitals to keep patients healthy, which is expected to lower costs over time. The impact on the management of supply chain is being felt in a variety of ways and this webinar recording focuses on the key areas of change from ACOs that supply chain professionals need to be strategically aware of.
