What is an ethical ACO?
Accountable care organizations (ACOs) are expected to play a key role in the attempt to increase the cost-efficiency of health care delivery while maintaining or improving quality and equity of patient care. Performance measures and incentives are used as managerial tools to move towards these aims. The presentation will explore how these tools can be used in an ethically acceptable way, and outline framework conditions for an “ethical ACO”.
