Prepared For

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation

Under a contract with CMS’s Innovation Center, Mathematica operates multiple learning systems for Medicare ACOs that promote the rapid distribution of innovative ideas and strategies for improving health care delivery and quality.

Accountable care organizations (ACOs) consist of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers who work together to provide coordinated, high quality care to Medicare beneficiaries. These organizations accept responsibility not only for the quality of care but also for the cost of care, and they provide data to the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) so that the agency can asses their performance. ACOs that deliver quality care efficiently receive some of the savings from CMS that they generated for the Medicare program.
