At Atrius Health, we strongly support sharing best practices so that more health systems may contribute to the growing movement to provide high-quality, cost-effective care as Accountable Care Organizations.

We hope that these recommendations will help inform health systems and aid them in developing effective strategies for entering ACO agreements.
