Over half the Pioneer ACOs have dropped from the program in the last four years, despite achieving $304 million in savings, and fifty percent of the participating ACOs receiving shared savings reimbursements. Why the exodus? Overutilization and inconsistent performance benchmarking and attribution hindered the ability of many participants to achieve success. The overall impact of the program, however, has been a positive one for value-based care. In the next 3-5 years, providers and health systems will bear more of the financial risk of the populations they serve. The proliferation of data, and the tools to analyze and exchange it, will be critical to the long-term success of value-based care.
