Accountable care organisation

An accountable care organisation (ACO) is a healthcare organisation that ties payments to quality metrics and the cost of care. The health care practitioners involved agree to be accountable for the quality, cost, and overall care of their patients.

As a healthcare actor, they aim further than to develop good services. They also want to generate actual and potential impacts for the society in general.

Impact measurement is therefore necessary to demonstrate your accountability.
