PatientKeeper CEO Paul Brient on Accountable Care Organizations (Podcast)

Hospitals and other providers that are planning to form Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) must make sure to put a robust information infrastructure in place to enable them to manage patient care and expenses effectively. In this podcast interview, PatientKeeper CEO Paul Brient comments on the ACO draft regulations and discusses the interaction between ACO activities and Meaningful Use requirements for health information technology.

ACOs have many of the characteristics of the capitated provider organizations that emerged in the 1990s. And while many of them have fallen by the wayside, capitation has endured in some places, especially California, where groups such as HealthCare Partners use PatientKeeper tools in a capitated environment.
