Last year marked the fifth performance year of the Medicare Shared Savings Program, during which ACOs reduced Medicare spending by $836 million, according to the Health Care Transformation Task Force.
Roughly 31 percent of those MSSP ACOs generated shared savings in 2016, according to data CMS released Friday.
In terms of quality, 330 of the 428 ACOs subject to pay-for-performance measures earned an average quality score of 94 percent. Ninety-eight of the ACOs garnered a 100 percent quality score. Overall, the average performance score improved by more than 10 percent across five measures: screening for fall risk, depression screening and follow-up, high blood pressure screening and follow-up, hemoglobin checks for diabetic patients, and diabetes eye exams.
