In a Health Affairs blog post, John A. Hartford Foundation-supported Health and Aging Policy Fellows, Julia Driessen and Turner West, explain how end-of-life care is ripe for transformation by accountable care organizations (ACOs).

The article, "Variation In End-Of-Life Care Is An Open Invitation For Accountable Care Organization Innovation," discusses that the realm of end-of-life care remains a largely unventured but promising area for ACO innovation. The authors detail strategic approaches, and explain why the conditions are now right for a more thoughtful integration of palliative and hospice services into the ACO care continuum.
