Version 2 of popular ACO 2012 directory now availableAugust 6, 2012 | Industry News Release
MCOL’s HealthQuest Publishers announces the release of Version 2 of their popular publication: the Accountable Care Directory 2012, available in electronic format for $139 or as a softcover book for $178. For additional details and online ordering, please visit: www.healthquestpublishers.com.
Says Clive Riddle, MCOL President, “Version 2 of the Directory doubles the number of ACOs listed (now over 200), with over 80% more staff listed (now over 700) plus updates throughout. This updated resource is ideal for collaborating, networking, recruiting, marketing or monitoring of Accountable Care Organizations. As ACOs are often technically structured as virtual organizations, utilizing established PHO or other provider networks and network management, applicable contact and summary information, as well as the specific executives and other individuals involved with the ACO, can be difficult to research and accurately identify. This Directory allows others to leverage our research and compilation to fulfill their business objectives with the Accountable Care marketplace.”
The Directory includes three components, plus an optional database:
- ACO Organizational Directory with contact and summary information provided for each organization, along with a listing of key individuals with leadership or operational involvement, with direct phone and email contact information when available.
- Executive Profiles providing contact and biographical information for over 160 executives and thought leaders involved with Accountable Care
- Indexes for convenient navigation and reference organized five different ways
- Directory customers may also purchase a database with the ACO organization and staff contact information in spreadsheet format.
Riddle also notes that “undoubtedly additional commercial or other ACO programs are under development or potentially operating at this time. While the Organizational Directory lists Medicare standard MSSP, Advance Payment and Pioneer ACOs, the commercial ACOs we included were selected on the basis of prominence and documented evidence of ACO activity, as opposed to inclusion of ‘ACO-like’ arrangements or past announced potential organizations that have not experienced recent progress, which have been included in some reports and census on ACO activities.”
