To be in an ACO, providers must show they can coordinate care with community partners across a continuum of care, something Steward Health Care already proved it can do well, as it has been part of the Federal Next Generation Medicare ACO, considered one of the most successful Medicare ACOs in the country. The Next Generation ACO aspires to attain the highest quality standards of care at lower costs to Medicare patients.
