Assignment 1: Accountable Care Organizations    
Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) play a key role in coordinating health care services for Medicare beneficiaries. These organizations have largely become consumer driven, making marketing and health care consumerism central to their success. By offering and marketing evidence-based, patient-centered services and initiatives, ACOs can better connect with consumers. For this Assignment, you examine the services and initiatives for an ACO in your state.
To prepare:

The Assignment
In a matrix, analyze evidence-based services/initiatives that the ACO you selected is using for each of the following:

Quality of care
IT
Marketing
Financial outcomes
Population health programs
Vertical versus horizontal integration
Operational excellence

Include whether the ACO is using approaches that CMS recognizes for reimbursements and how these initiatives/services increase health care consumerism.
Synthesize the information you have gathered from your analysis so that each bullet point clearly represents the most significant considerations within each category. While this is a 1-page document that might appear to be simple, each point must be the result of deep and critical thinking.
