Accountable Care Organizations: Value Metrics and Capital Formation, written by Health Capital Consultants (HCC) Chief Executive Officer, Robert James Cimasi, MHA, ASA, FRICS, MCBA, CVA, CM&AA and published by Taylor and Francis in June 2013, examines the Four Pillars of value in the healthcare industry: regulatory, reimbursement, competition, and technology in addressing the value metrics of ACOs, including requirements for capital formation, financial feasibility, and economic returns. It focuses the discussion of non-monetary value on a review of aspects of population health within the context of such objectives as improved quality outcomes and access to care.

The book examines the positive externalities of the ACO model, including results for third parties outside the basic construct of the ACO contracts shared savings payments. It also discusses the potential role and opportunities for consultants in assisting their provider clients in the consideration, development, implementation, and operation of an ACO.
