MINNEAPOLIS -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Today, TripleTree released a new research report, ACOs: The Accountable Care Opportunity, an assessment on risk shift and the broader impact of payer-provider collaboration in healthcare.
For a term that was invented in 2006 to describe a concept formally launched only in 2012, the growth in the actual number of ACOs has been astounding. This report provides context and insight into what is enabling these organizational transitions, what the opportunity for Accountable Care Organizations really is, and which healthcare vendors are building businesses best-positioned to share in this new market.
“As risk shifts in the healthcare industry, we are seeing many different models of accountable care starting to take hold. In order for ACOs and other models to find sustainable success in improving the cost and quality of care, many organizations will need to transform their business models and capabilities,” said Chris Hoffmann, Senior Director and Chief Marketing Officer at TripleTree. “Focusing on the ACO opportunity was the approach our team took to illustrate these trends and the competencies organizations will need to build and enable the ACO.”
