A February 2011 Accountable Care Organizations e-survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network set out to assess the industry’s awareness of and readiness for ACOs.

Responses provided by 228 healthcare organizations, submitted before CMS released its proposed rule, indicate that a significant segment of the industry is reframing its care delivery structure as an ACO or will do so in the near future. According to respondents, the top five challenges of ACO creation are:

  • Cost (22 percent)
  • Staff/management buy-in (20 percent)
  • Other (18 percent)
  • Reimbursement (12 percent)
  • Evidence-based care (8 percent)
