Physician Practice interviewed me about what hospitals with an eye on accountable care organizations want.  I believe it is all about partnerships and the priorities of hospitals, physicians, long-term care, home care and other community-based providers will include:

  • identifying partners with good outcomes
  • identifying partners who are efficient, but effective, and utilize resources wisely.

We have seen an increase in transparancy of outcomes as it relates to hospitals and SNFs and believe we will soon see efforts to also publish physician specific outcome metrics.  Ultimately, outcomes will also be available on other long-term care facilities, home health, hospice and other providers.

Use of technology (EHRs, HIE, Telemedicine, Remote Monitoring, Social Media, Mobile, etc) will also play an important role in the efficieny and effectiveness of partners.

Let me know if you think there is something else that should rise to the top of an ACO-minded leaders list.
