The Physician’s CIN and ACO Contracting Guide

The Physician’s CIN and ACO Contracting Guide is a strategic guide intended for physicians as they consider joining a “clinically integrated network” or “accountable care organization” to participate in value-based payment arrangements. While these types of organizations may involve a variety of provider configurations and may be organized/sponsored by any combination of health care organizations (i.e. large physician groups, hospital-based systems, independent practice associations, insurers and/or virtual networks of independent practices), the general purpose of such an organization is to link various health care providers so they can provide coordinated services to particular patient populations and bear some responsibility both clinically and financially for the outcomes and health status of that population.

This guide involved input through the participation of many thought leaders from various sponsoring organizations who have come together to form the Toward Accountable Care Consortium and Initiative(“TAC”). This guide would not have been possible without the generous support of all TAC member organizations, including significant support from the North Carolina Medical Society, as well as a substantial grant from The Physicians Foundation.
