Discussion 2: Controlling Variation

Post, a description of the health process or outcome you selected and explain why. Then, explain variance reduction measures that might be appropriate for improving performance for this health process or outcome. Explain how you would measure the process or outcome to ensure that variance reduction measures worked. Then, explain how well accountable care organizations (ACOs) performed in comparison to non-ACOs as suggested by the McWilliams, Chernew, Landon, & Schwartz (2015) article. Explain whether you believe that ACOs will be effective in controlling cost, quality, and access variation. Then, explain whether you, as a health care administration leader, would encourage a health organization to move toward the ACO model. Why or why not?
