Payers and providers have been more reticent about creating accountable care organizations than their enthusiasm projected 18 months ago, according to a recent survey of senior hospital executives.

Asked ACO creation in the spring of 2012, nearly 5% of these leaders said they were part of an ACO. An additional 47% were confident they’d have one in place by the end of 2013. In reality, only 18.3% of these respondents had an ACO in place in August of 2013.
