Every year, you may hear more and more about Accountable Care Organizations. Generally referred to as ACOs, these are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers that come together voluntarily to give coordinated high-quality health care to their Medicare patients. The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors (Centers for Medicare, 2015). As a health care administrator, you must ensure that you understand the various types of health care organizations available for your facility, your employees, and your patients.

For this Discussion, you examine Accountable Care Organizations and the programs that are supported by them, as well as best practices used by these programs in the effort to guarantee high-quality care to their Medicare patients.

To prepare for this Discussion, select an Accountable Care Organization and a program that is mapped to that ACO. Evaluate one of the program’s best practices that have been and continue to be effective at promoting population health.

write  a brief description of your selected Accountable Care Organization and a program within that organization that promotes population health initiatives. Evaluate the program’s effectiveness in promoting population health initiatives. Then, within that program, evaluate best practices that promote population health within the community. In your explanation, consider the following:

  • What seems to be working?
  • Have they addressed any barriers?
