Share this:


Health systems and hospitals  in Premier Inc.’s PACT population-health-management collaborative (in North Carolina) have outperformed other Medicare ACOs in the Medicare Shared Savings and Pioneer programs, reporting higher than average scores in 22 of the 33 quality measures.

FierceHealthcare reported that “{u}nlike many of the ACOs that struggled to achieve the metrics necessary to achieve shared savings, the Premier PACT ACOs have reported year-over-year improvements nearly double the national rate. Twenty-six percent of the 353 MSSP and Pioneer ACOs qualified for shared savings nationwide in performance year 2014. But 47 percent of the MSSP and Pioneer ACOs in PACT earned approximately $50 million in shared savings….”

“Five percent of all Pioneer and MSSP organizations are members of the collaborative but represent 12 percent of the total national savings.”
