You are a member of a health system’s executive committee responsible for developing an accountable care organization (ACO). The committee has decided that by focusing on quality improvement, cost savings will follow. The new ACO will have limited funds in the early years for implementing information systems to help the ACO’s providers meet the performance criteria on CMS’ ACO quality measures. You have been asked to recommend to the executive committee a strategy for the first phase of the ACO’s health information technology infrastructure. Review the clinical information system applications described in chapter five of the course text and the clinical information ecosystem illustrated in figure 5.6 (Wager et al., 2009, p. 109-142). Which clinical information system application would you recommend that the ACO start with to maximize its potential to improve quality and exceed CMS’ performance criteria? Why? Defend your position.
