Working with Premier, Inc., this study explored how participation in ACOs affects hospitals’ workforce assignment and configuration. The study 1) describes the differences in workforce characteristics in hospitals adopting versus not adopting an ACO model and 2) determines key changes in workforce before and after a hospital adopts an ACO model. Key Questions
- Hospitals with what types of workforce configuration are more likely to participate in an ACO?
- How do hospitals change their workforce after participating in an ACO?
- Do hospitals not yet participating in ACOs make similar/different changes to workforce as their peers in ACOs?
