5 Challenges to the Spread of ACOs

There are five main obstacles that could hinder the spread of accountable care organizations and other coordinated care models, according to a United Hospital Fund report.

The report, "Moving Toward Accountable Care in New York," identifies the following five aspects of accountable care could slow or stop the future success of ACOs and the spread of the model:

•    The behavioral and logistical changes necessary to move from fee-for-service to various accountable care payment models, such as shared savings and capitation.
•    The merits and challenges of physician-led vs. hospital-led networks.
•    The cost of the necessary accountable care infrastructure.
•    The dependence on patient behavior.
•    The importance of multi-payor alignment.
