Accountable care organizations were created through ACA, which is a new type of care to patients as well as a new payment method. It creates incentives for the health care providers to work together to better help the patient with all aspects of care in mind. This is mainly to improve patient care and health but at the same time save money through care delivery.

Many corporations and businesses are making classes for their pharmacist to attend so they can better understand what all is changing once ACA is fully implemented.
