What Is The Aim of An Accountable Care Organization and why is it important to improve costs and quality of care?

The following infographic created by Healthcare IT Connect  examines the need for accountable care organizations.

The ideal goal is that ACOs can achieve both cost and quality improvements, because of a care coordinated delivery model that is based on quality outcomes, instead of its volume of services. ACOs must be physician-led, primary care-centered, and a patient-focused systems of care.

The infographic states a successful ACO as putting the patient  at the center  of all its activities and ensures coordination of care. The visualization also reports on the facts surrounding the formation of accountable care organizations in the US, including developments with the 32 pioneer ACOs and the efforts to promote higher quality care at lower costs.
