The Cleveland Clinic. It is a model that many point to when they talk about the future of health care delivery. The Cleveland Clinic uses a team approach with the goal of solving the problem and keeping the patient healthy. Unnecessary tests are not part of The Cleveland Clinic approach. So what does this have to do with ACOs? Created by the Affordable Care Act, the goal of the ACO is to “take ownership” over a patient base. The ACO strives to provide health care in a cost-effective way, avoid unnecessary tests, use a team approach, and keep patients healthy. The ACO is made up of hospitals, physicians, and other health care providers. The ACO will be influential in the decisions that patients make regarding what health care providers they will use. This program will discuss what an ACO is, how it is formed, and what it does. Equally as important, the program will discuss the role that the DME supplier can take in the implementation of the ACO model.
