This paper briefly describes the basic structure, operation and activities of ACOs, while outlining some of the key issues and questions that the Workgroup will tackle. WEDI encourages organizations to participate in an ongoing survey of ACOs to help monitor progress and evaluate common practices, challenges and opportunities. In follow-up to this brief, the Workgroup intends to develop additional papers that provide further perspective and overview of issues encountered, such as contracting and quality measurement and alignment.
