ACOs Will Cover 130 Million Patients by 2017

Over the next 2 years, the number of patients receiving care from an accountable care organization (ACO) is expected to increase by more than 200%, according to a new report.

Research from Parks Associates projects that recent business and regulatory changes in healthcare will drive up the number of people being treated by ACOs from 40 million in 2015 to more than 130 million patients by 2017.

“Reforms to the healthcare financial model tie compensation to care outcomes, and ACOs, built on the coordinated care model, align well with this new emphasis," Harry Wang, director of Health & Mobile Product Research at Parks Associates, said in a statement.
