A major goal of accountable care and ACOs is to increase the quality of care delivered to patients. Medicare ACOs provide detailed measurements by which to determine their success.

  • Before an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) can share in any savings earned the organization, it must demonstrate that the quality performance standard have been achieved for that year
  • The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will measure quality of care using 33 nationally recognized measurements within four domains:
    • Patient /Caregiver Experience (7 measures)
    • Care Coordination /Patient Safety (6 measures)
    • Preventive Health (8 measures)
