How the Pioneer ACOs compare on quality, shared savings in 2015

Across the board, 2015 was a great year for quality improvement among Pioneer accountable care organizations, but not all participants did as well financially, according to data released Thursday by CMS.

Together, the Pioneer ACOs generated net savings of $37 million for Medicare in 2015, and every organization improved in overall quality.

Eight of the 12 Pioneer ACOs were able to generate savings for Medicare, but just six shared in savings. Four generated shared losses, but just one had to pay back those losses to CMS. Here is how the 12 Pioneer ACOs stacked up in terms of shared savings or losses in 2015.

  1. Banner Health Network (Mesa, Ariz.) — $24,578,370
  2. Fairview Health Services (Minneapolis) — $2,676,256
  3. Monarch HealthCare (Irvine, Calif.) — $2,634,805
