In Cal­i­for­nia, many providers have been work­ing in ac­count­able care or­ga­ni­za­tions for decades, and they say they can work well. “It’s not the type of or­ga­ni­za­tion that de­fines the suc­cess of an ACO, it’s the lead­er­ship,” said Tom Wil­liams, left, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Oak­land, Calif.-based In­te­grated Health­care As­so­ci­a­tion. “For suc­cess, there needs to be align­ment be­tween hos­pi­tals and physi­cians.”
