Accountable Care Organizations hold great promise in improving quality and reducing costs of health care. But little is known about the organizational structure of current ACOs, and what factors will lead to their success.

In this interview, Elliott Fisher of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice describes new research that builds a “taxonomy” of ACOs. This study will help researchers, policy makers and health care leaders understand why ACOs succeed or fail, and what it will take to keep the movement going.
