     ACOS- And the debate continues…


 Are accountable care organizations the future of the healthcare
  industry?

 Or will they force independent practices to shut their doors?


 According to a recent report 49 percent of primary care
  physicians and 53 percent of endocrinologists are expected to
  switch to the ACO model in the coming year.
     Financial security and better care


 Physicians who’ve partnered with acos are provided incentives for
  prescribing more generic medication.

 They are also encouraged to lower hospitalization costs.


 This accent on the quality of care and containing costs can offer
  clinical benefits and savings, for healthcare providers.
        The much needed compass…


 One of the major reasons attributed to the popularity of acos is
  that they provide a sense of direction.

 And help physicians to focus on quality metrics, to receive
  reimbursement and incentives.
                   It is not all gravy…


 There are strong oppositions to practices adopting the acos model
  of working.

 Some section of the healthcare sector, feel it can pressurize
  independent practices, to join larger organizations.

 The clinical benefits it offers are also viewed with a sense of
  skepticism.
       Will it join the IDNs of the 90’s?


 Integrated delivery networks were followed by several healthcare
  providers in the 90’s.

 Hospitals followed and pursued two strategies, of vertical and
  horizontal integration.

 There were different models such as strategic alliances and
  acquisitions.
