 Compliance programs and practices about physician agreements and relationships are the keys to lowering the risk an institution faces when partnering with physicians.  As physician management remains a high priority for health care organizations generally, special Medicare and other preferences and incentives created for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) have many hospitals and other health care organizations considering or rushing toward establishment or participation in ACOs. While the operation of a well-designed, legally compliant ACO could offer some health care organizations and providers attractive new opportunities for collaboration, ACOs or a particular ACO opportunity that may fit some health care organizations providers may not be a good fit for others.  Furthermore, the ability of a health care organization and its providers to realize the anticipated benefits of an ACO or other physician incentive programs depends requires that the ACO sponsor and its participating providers understand and successfully negotiate the many legal, political, technical, and operational challenges.
