Modern Healthcare

The University of California at Berkeley has released an accountable care organization readiness survey for safety net providers.

The survey, which was pilot-tested in two California counties, includes 90 questions across nine categories. It was published in a policy brief (PDF) from the university’s School of Public Health and School of Law and is geared toward safety net providers, “which generally lack capital resources needed to create more-integrated, cost-effective systems of care,” according to the brief’s authors.
