Can accountable care organisations really improve the English NHS? Lessons from the United States.
The authors summarize evidence on accountable care organizations in the US - including what they look like, their effect on the quality and cost of healthcare, and how they are redesigning care. Recognizing major differences in context, they offer lessons from the US experience for National Health Service policy makers as they consider the future of similar ventures in England.
