Quality Improvement Score Calculator

Resource summary

You’ve heard about (ACOs) Accountable Care Organizations as a way to improve patient care and lower costs---but how do they actually work? HCA's Quality Improvement Score Calculator shows on a customizable financial spreadsheet how quality metrics can lead to shared savings or deficit payments. It is based on the ACO financial model the State of WA uses for their ACP program. The calculator walks you through entering estimated quality scores, costs, number of payments, and financial terms to see how much money your ACO would lose or gain.
