ACOs are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high-quality care to their patients. The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients
get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors.

ACO participants also agree to take on responsibility for the total costs of care for their patients. ACOs that reduce the total costs of care for their patient populations can share in the savings with the payer.

When an ACO succeeds in both delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely, it will have a share in the savings it achieves.
