Like healthcare organizations elsewhere, reducing readmissions had become a top priority by 2011. Advocate, the stateís largest healthcare provider, had just signed its first shared savings agreement with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois to become one of the first commercial accountable care organizations (ACOs) in the country. This event, along with others such as signing up as a Medicare Shared Savings Provider, led to re-evaluating the care continuum throughout Advocate Healthís 250 sites of care, including 13 acute-care hospitals, two childrenís hospitals and a growing home healthcare division.
