Fisher: One group could be a Medicare ACO

Share this:


In this interview, Dartmouth’s Elliott Fisher, M.D. often called “The Father of Accountable Care Organizations,” talks about the direction of healthcare. Among his observations:

”Can narrow networks or MA plans be aligned with ACOs? I think so. You can imagine a policy environment in which a single organization could easily be a Medicare ACO, part of a Medicare Advantage plan or offered on the exchanges. The key would be to align organizational requirements, performance measures and payment incentives.”
