Fellows at the school’s Warren Institute’s Health, Economic and Family Security Program released the first part of a three-part study Thursday that recommends changes to the current health care system through the creation of accountable care organizations — a model of health care that financially rewards both patients and doctors for speedy and full recoveries, according to the brief.
