The secret sauce of ACOs Clinical Integration is a physician andprovider led effort Internally motivated to monitor themselvesand deliver better quality and higher value not something that is forced on them fromthe outside The secret sauce is the empowerment ofthe physicians Financial incentives are important but notthe only motivating factor in a successfulACO Need to foster an entrepreneurial attitudeand a desire to seek out novel solutions andaccept the challenge to explore and learnhow to make this work7 Services 8.

Do we really need to do this? As a small community hospital, you may wonder if you have to form an ACO or CI program There are a number of reasons you should: Commercial payers moving to ACO model too Competition for community primary care physicians is on the rise Integrated delivery networks are forming Clinical integration principles are very successful in smaller hospitals12 12Services 13.

Wrap Up Whether the current rules for an ACO survive as is or are modified, the concept of clinical integration and shared cost savings will survive The infrastructure needed for an ACO consisting of separate provider entities in a community is the same infrastructure needed for a single provider entity, such as a health system, to improve quality and efficiency The key to improving quality and efficiency is consistent ways to gather the data, compare the results, and look for patterns of improvement A cloud based infrastructure enables a standard set of interoperability and analytics tools to be utilized across ACOs resulting in further efficiencies and sharing of best practices and innovation Change is Inevitable22 Healthcare 23.
