ACOs, PCMHs and Population Health

Various models of health care delivery and payment are emerging with a focus on managing the health of populations. Some examples include Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMHs). In addition, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Innovation Center is testing innovative payment and service delivery models, including the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative, designed to reduce costs and enhance the quality of care for individuals who receive Medicare, Medicaid or Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) benefits.
