The number of physicians participating in accountable care organizations has increased drastically since 2012, according to Medscape's 2013 Physician Compensation Report.

Last year, just 8 percent of the nation's physicians were either in an ACO or planned to be in one within the year, according to Medscape's 2012 report. This year, 24 percent of respondents are in an ACO or plan to join one within the year.

Nearly 22,000 physicians responded to the 2013 survey.
