 It is the importance of accountable care organizations (ACOs), as much as the uncertainty about their future, that makes The ACO Handbook: A Guide to Accountable Care Organizations necessary for those grappling with the changes brought about by healthcare reform. The contributors to this handbook are among the best professionals in America today who are seriously considering what it will take to succeed under the new healthcare environment. Their astute observations about the legal issues, both novel and familiar, likely to be encountered by those contemplating ACO development will be useful to the reader no matter what role these organizations ultimately play in the reformed U.S. healthcare system.
