“An ACO’s ability to be successful is significantly dependent on physicians being highly engaged and committed to practicing evidence-based medicine,” says Dr. Wade. “This session describes the process Memorial Hermann implemented in their mission to build a successful ACO. One critical component to their ongoing success has been the support of Hayes in the form of in depth research and developing clinical pathways.”
