Accountable Care Organizations: Findings from the Survey of Care Systems and Payment

Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are a relatively new organizational structure for which little data exist about their organizational structures and operation. To help fill this information gap, the AHA conducted a survey. 309 ACOs responded to this survey in 2013 which covered such topics as structure and governance, contracts and risk models, key challenges, performance management and information exchange.
