Association between specialist compensation and Accountable Care Organization performance.
This study’s objective was to determine whether Medicare Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) using cost reduction measures in specialist compensation demonstrated better performance. National cross-sectional survey data on ACOs from 2013-2015 was linked to public-use data on ACO performance from 2014-2016. Out of 160 ACOs surveys, 26% reported using cost reduction measures to help determine specialist compensation. However, these ACOs did not have savings in the short term.
