ACO and big data
What's interesting to me about ACO formation is the degree of big data needed. How ironic is it that hospitals and insurance agencies monopolize this information?  In order to effectively compete physicians need to be more data savvy.  We can't be data deniers. At MDNetX we are leveraging big data to help little docs. Shameless plug, but please check us out! Thanks.
