EHRs are a key part of ACOs [VIDEO]


Accountable care organizations are a major part of the future of healthcare. The goal of ACOs is to help groups of doctors, nurses, home care workers and other healthcare professionals come together to provide coordinated care. Recently, a study published in the journal Academic Medicine found that EHRs may be one of the keys to a successful ACO.

According to iHealthBeat, the authors of the study found that robust health information technology and analytics is one of the key parts of ACOs.
