Few hospitals are part of ACOs, report says

Cincinnati Business Courier, August 21, 2012

Accountable care organizations are a major component of health reform, but only 13 percent of hospitals are participating in one or plan to do so in the next year, according to a new report. In Greater Cincinnati, only Mercy Health has formed an ACO. The region's other major hospital systems are taking a wait-and-see approach, fearful that the arrangement won't be financially viable. The new data comes from a survey of 1,700 hospitals by the New York-based Commonwealth Fund.
