New Peer-Reviewed Study Shows Mixed Results in ACO Medication Readiness To Achieve Quality, Cost Goals
Date:1/6/2014

" type="disc">
  • Transmit prescriptions electronically (70 percent have high readiness in this area)
  • Integrate medical and pharmacy data into a single database (54 percent)
  • Offer formularies that encourage generic use when appropriate (50 percent)
  • However, survey responses show ACOs are just beginning to address several key capabilities, including the ability to:

    • Have protocols in place to avoid medication duplication and polypharmacy (17 percent)
    • Have quality metrics in place for a broad diversity of conditions (22 percent)
    • Quantify the cost offsets of medication use and demonstrate the value of appropriate medication use (7 percent have high readiness in this area)

    "Just as physicians need to consider when medications are appropriate for individual  patients, ACOs are under the same imperative to put processes into place that will allow them to use medications to maximize the benefit for all of their patients," said Donald W. Fisher, PhD, CAE, AMGA president and CEO.

    The study is part of a broader project supported by NPC, AMGA and Premier to understand the role of pharmaceuticals in helping ACOs achieve their financial and quality goals. In the project's foundational stage, the partners, working in conjunction with a group of ACOs, developed a framework for considering the costs and benefits of medications in various conditions. The results of that effort were published as a web exclusive in the July 2012 issue of the American Journal of Managed Care. Following the readiness assessment and gap identification captured in this current study, additional phases will include the development of practical tools that
