The Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model is one of the ways the Affordable Care Act reduces healthcare costs while providing better cost management, patient care, and health outcomes. Life sciences customer-facing professionals must have an in-depth knowledge of ACOs. They should be able to explain how they differ from IDNs and MCOs, their role in healthcare delivery and should be able to recognize questions to consider before approaching an ACO.
