No Evidence That ACO-Affiliated Hospitals Are Narrowing Their PAC Networks

This white paper details the findings from an analysis of Medicare claims data that was compared with Accountable Care Organization (ACO) affiliation data from Torch Insight™, a proprietary analytics platform and compendium of health care data. Hospitals affiliated with or owned by an ACO are financially incentivized to manage the health and health care costs of their defined populations. One potential means of reducing unnecessary costs is by referring patients to fewer, higher-quality post-acute care (PAC) facilities following hospitalization.
