Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Clinically Integrated Networks (CINs) are highly structured collaborations between health systems and clinical providers designed to coordinate the resources needed to achieve Triple Aim goals and create a legal “safe harbor” for groups to affiliate in innovative ways for greater efficiency and community benefit. By thoughtfully designing processes that manage medical care throughout the spectrum of services and utilizing the most efficient, evidenced-based practices, these clinical networks are intended to achieve the best quality of care at the lowest cost value. These legal entities are also utilize to joint contract across payers/employers for rewards attributed to demonstrated improvement.
