The article offers information on the real-time management tools needed in the management of outcomes and costs in accountable care organizations (ACOs). It states that developing an in-house case-management capability is one of the most significant strategies which a provider should take in order to achieve real-time clinical management. It adds that predictive modeling and patient registries should also be implemented in real-time clinical management.
