More Medicare ACOs Will Take On Risk in 2018

David Muhlestein provided his insights regarding ACOs taking on risk for a Modern Healthcare article entitled “More Medicare ACOs will take on risk in 2018.” David said, “Certainly (the numbers) are showing that more ACOs are taking on risk, but it’s not going to be mad dash. It is going to be a gradual, sustained movement.” He also noted that while “delivery transformation is really hard,” he expects additional ACOs will migrate to the “risky tracks” as MACRA is fully implemented. “There is certainly continued evidence that organizations are starting to figure this out,” Muhlestein said.
