Fifty-five percent of payors plan to participate in accountable care organizations over the next three years, according to survey results from HealthEdge.

The survey was based on responses from more than 100 payor organizations nationwide. Apart from ACOs, 48 percent of respondents plan to leverage value-based benefit designs, and 51 percent plan to utilize pay-for-performance models.

Despite these plans, the "vast majority" of respondents indicated that their organizations currently lack the technology necessary for these imperatives, according to the release.
