The Organized Customer Group Navigator includes PowerProfiles and the Macro Trends Deck. Each provides a unique window into the accountable care strategies of organized customer groups, including integrated delivery networks and physician organizations as well as new stakeholders such as employers and drug retailers.
Regardless of what becomes of the Affordable Care Act or Republican-led healthcare reform, the shift to value-based healthcare will continue. Cost pressures, demands from employers for more cost-effective coverage options and the twin trends of transparency and consumerism will push U.S. healthcare from fee-for-volume to fee-for-value and fuel the demand for accountable care. This Macro Trends Deck examines the continuing evolution of accountable care, the emerging role of integrated delivery networks and how ACOs can be used to predict a market’s readiness for other value-based reform movements such as the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, or MACRA.
