Use of Health Information Technology to Support Care Coordination through ACOs

The MSSP, established by section 3022 of ACA, introduced ACOs into the Medicare program to promote accountability of hospitals, physicians, and other providers for a patient population, coordinate items and services, and encourage investment in infrastructure and redesigned care processes for high-quality and efficient service delivery. We will review the extent to which ACOs use health information technology to enhance their care coordination goals. We will also identify best practices and possible challenges to the exchange and use of health data for care coordination purposes.
