AMA Survey Reveals That Physician Interest Lags In ACO Participation

Many physicians say they lack specific details about the care model and how it will reimburse providers

In its own news service, the American Medical Association (AMA) reports lagging interest by physicians when they are asked about their participation in accountable care organizations (ACO). This survey of AMA members was conducted last fall.

According to an article at (AMN), this survey found that—although many physicians are familiar with the concept—a significant number of them indicate they will either opt out of an ACO or unsure whether they will participate in an ACO.
