We don't need any more certification organizations in healthcare. They just add to costs. Providers don't benefit either. If provider groups want to hire NCQA or Dartmouth or Brookings to ensure that they are prepared to compete in the ACO market, so be it. Perhaps these organizations will also guarantee success as they "certify" - and then it will be a worthwhile investment. But without such success based formulae these certification companies just add to unnecessary overhead.
