The number of Accountable Care Organizations in the U.S. has increased 38% in the last six months.
Accountable Care Organizations, commonly referred to as ACOs, now stretch across 45 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. In total, 221 ACOs have been identified — a 38 percent increase compared to those identified just six months ago. ACO activity in the private sector outnumbers the government sector by a factor of four to one. The majority of ACOs are found in larger metropolitan regions. These and other findings are contained in the updated report authored by Leavitt Partners titled, “Growth and Dispersion of Accountable Care Organizations,” available at aco.leavittpartners.com.
