"The Premier healthcare alliance supports CMS in its efforts to develop people-centered, sensible regulations for accountable care organizations. This new model of care delivery represents one of our best hopes for overcoming fragmentation in care delivery. In forming ACOs, we believe we will achieve greater clinical integration and collaboration among doctors, hospitals and other care providers, and foster alignment of accountable care principles across public and private payors. The end result will be better, safer and more convenient care delivered at a lower cost for the benefit of healthcare consumers nationwide.
