Exploring Accountable Care in Canada: Integrating Financial and Quality Incentives for Physicians and Hospitals – Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement – 1 April 2014

“ACOs are promising vehicles for aligning physician and hospital interests in improving quality and reducing cost. However, successful implementation and realization of the ACO mission requires that attention be paid to supporting capacity building within the ACOs, development of a culture of learning and improvement, as well as rigorous monitoring and evaluation. While the jury is still out on success of ACO implementation efforts in the United States, the results presented here suggest that further exploration of their potential in Canada is warranted, and that distinct characteristics of the Canadian system might require a slightly different approach.”
