The white paper, entitled, "Accountable Care Organizations: Summary and Analysis of the Proposed Rule," covers a wide range of areas, including the ACO application process, shared governance requirement, legal issues, quality measures and reporting, shared savings determination, and which healthcare constituencies appear to have exercised the most influence in the formation of the proposed rule.

"In the tradition of our white papers on major issues in healthcare—such as meaningful use and compliance—our healthcare policy team has endeavored to objectively report on the most salient elements of the proposed rule," said Ken Perez, who directs MedeAnalytics' healthcare policy research and serves as the company's senior vice president of marketing. "We expect this piece to serve as a kind of reference work for understanding the draft regulation."

The white paper, reference materials and links to leading online resources are available at the company's Accountable Care Organization Resource Center.
