As part of the Learning Systems for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) project, Mathematica developed a web-based, interactive dashboard for Pioneer ACOs. The dashboard—which enables individual ACOs to see and measure performance results for cost and quality, and to benchmark this information against that of their peers—includes demographic information for analysis, as well as resources to assist system users. In addition, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) can view progress across the program and ACO staff can track their progress over time. This article by our health experts discusses the lessons learned from creating the new dashboard. We will build another dashboard for patients with end-stage renal disease in 2016.
