3 1. Accountable Care Conceptual and operational framework to describe ACO along criteria essential to assess and track organizations transforming into the accountable care model (Dartmouth/Berkeley HA - 9/12. NCQA Accreditation Program. Early assessment of national progress towards accountable care: Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET ) national survey of hospital preparedness for accountable care; Fund Data Brief (Audet/Kenward/Joshi; August 2012). Hospital system perspective. Established a foundation to track evolution of ACO implementation: Fisher et al national survey of SSP/Pioneer/Private sector ACOs (approx 210 sites surveyed fall 2012). Results forthcoming. Support work to inform major issues surrounding vulnerable populations in the development and implementation of ACOs. ACO implementation of the Premier ACO Collaborative identified variation in key domains of ACO readiness (Kroch et al, Fund 2012).
