This HealthAffairs article “dives into the pool of ACO quality measures,” and and looks at Medicare Shared Savings Program Year 2 performance metrics.

The authors conclude:

“The findings indicate the per-member benchmark is the strongest predictor of receiving savings and the amount of savings. But while success in savings to date is largely influenced by the established per-member benchmark, several quality measures are logically related to the magnitude of savings. Opportunities remain for improving patient outcomes. Additional time and experience in selecting quality metrics may be required to strengthen the relation measures of care quality and cost savings.”
