New ACOs Emerging in Northern California
California Healthline

Two new accountable care organizations taking shape in Northern California may help determine what works and what doesn’t in the new world of health care reform. After a successful launch of a two-year ACO pilot with 41,000 CalPERS members in Sacramento, Blue Shield of California, Catholic Healthcare West and Hill Physicians Medical Group will parlay their experience into a new ACO targeting 5,000 members of the San Francisco Health Service System. This time around, UCSF Medical Center will join the ranks.
