Maintaining Progress Toward Accountable Care And Payment Reform During A Pandemic, Part 1: Utilization And Financial Impact

Duke-Margolis authors found that the COVID-19 pandemic will have a significant negative financial impact on Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) due to changes in utilization and expenditures but ACOs must be stabilized due to their ability to respond to pandemics.
