What is an ACO? Accountable Care Organization - As defined by CMS.gov - An ACO are groups of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated, high quality care to their Medicare patients.

This is a rebroadcast of the context piece offered to the press prior to the release of the proposed rule on Accountable Care Organizations, published in the Federal Register, Thursday, March 31st, 2011.
The call begins with Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, followed by Dr. Don Berwick, Administrator, of CMS, with participation from FTC, DOY, and Treasury.
A very informative overview of what's inside the regs!
On the Wednesday July 24th 2013 broadcast at 12 noon Pacific/3PM Eastern my special guest is thought leader and advocate for patient centric healthcare Leonard Kish, aka @LeonardKish progenitor of the 'Patient Engagement is the Blockbuster Drug of Century' characterization by Dave Chase.
In a recent blog post Leonard equated the push into ACOs as the equivalent of the new, new thing i.e., the 'new OS' in moving the needle forward in our quest for the 'triple aim'.
Tying comments from Jam Hansen on the disruptive nature of ACOS, i.e., 'Value-based care is a transformational journey, not a backend contract driven program that you overlay onto your existing delivery system organization’s people, processes and technologies and expect different results” to a Microsoft value proposition analogy made by Tim O'reily Leonard notes:
'..the OS abstracts away the difficulty in managing all the devices and processes the computer runs so applications can focus on what the user wants to do. When Microsoft entered the market in the 80s that was their value proposition, simplicity for developing new applications by abstracting away the other processes. Health care, under value-based payment, will soon have the same opportunity.'
Leonard is a deep and insightful thinker in the space, our previous discussion of his take was in the form of 'dark matter in healthcare: patient goals'.

Early in EMS education we are presented with the idea that "time" is a factor in much of what we do. Golden Hours, Platinum Ten Minutes, Time is Muscle etc.
While some of these can help us with our treatment and transport decisions, have you ever wondered or questioned if they are getting in the way of patient care?
As EMS providers we bring much of the Emergency Department to the patient. Even more so we are expected to provide certain levels of care to our patients prior to delivery to these ED's.
I am sure that you have been questioned or made to feel like less of a provider when you don't provide certain aspects of care. Even when it was due to trying to follow dictated "time" constraints that are expected and may have been in the patients better interest to transport rather than perform a skill prior to arrival at the ED.
So what do you think? Are these time markers valuable to us as providers or helpful?
Do we end up focusing too much on them and not on what is best for the patient?
