The AMCP Special Projects Sub-Committee developed this resource guide to document and explore medication management practices of pharmacists in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). The resource guide also identifies additional methods that involve managed care pharmacists and/or other managed care practitioners within a patient-centered medical home concept. Lastly, the guide provides resources to clarify the differences between PCMH and ACO concepts that will establish a base-line concept of each resource market segment outlined above.
Below is a compilation of related electronic resources about ACOs for AMCP members. Each resource is tagged with the below topic areas:
