Supply of Primary Care Workforce
Scenario: Your hospital has an opportunity to participate with an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) contract with 20,000 ACO patients. The ACO patient population expects about 2,000 avoidable hospitalizations per year with a potential savings of $20 million, which will be shared as follows: 50% revenue to the insurer and 50% revenue to the hospital. The ACO patient population will require an average of six office visits per year, and 120,000 total office visits will need to be supplied by your primary care workforce.
