Statewide Accountable Care Organization Could be in the Cards for Delaware

Currently, Delaware is the only state in the nation without an accountable care organization, but that may change soon, according to a Government Health IT report.

Choose Health Delaware, a health reform education program, is putting together plans to bring accountable care to the state under CMS' state innovation model program. According to the report, the group is considering using the Medicare Shared Savings Program as a model for accountable care in the state.

CHD is made up of state officials and healthcare leaders. The workgroup envisions using the state's health information exchange as a care coordination asset, according to the report.

Delaware has six health systems and about 2,000 physicians, according to the report.
