The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published a toolkit highlighting strategies that Medicare accountable care organizations (ACOs) can use to coordinate care for their patient populations. The toolkit outlines strategies that include both system-wide initiatives and targeted interventions that support individuals with chronic conditions or recent acute care needs. The toolkit also includes examples of facilitating data exchange between primary care providers and emergency departments, establishing networks of post-acute care partners to support their mission of improving the quality and effectiveness of care, and focusing on information technology to streamline referrals to community organizations.
