Are accountable care organizations 'improving population health'?
Date:3/19/2013

ctioning as part of "Accountable Health Communities," in which ACOs would cooperate with other organizations to improve geographical population health. Whether or not this is possible, or how this would be done is a difficult and complicated issue.

"It will only be possible to have this debate if the phrase 'population health' is used clearly, and not as a vague way of referring to what ACOs are currently doing," says Dr. Noble. "Otherwise, it will be very difficult to understand what ACOs are doing, what they are not doing and what they should be doing, who can do these things, how they can be measured and how and for whom incentives should be created."
