The accountable care organization I researched is called the Physician Organization of Michigan ACO (POM ACO). The POM ACO is a joint venture of the U-M Health System and physician groups around the state, with the aim of improving care for 81,000 Michiganders enrolled in traditional Medicare and slowing the growth of health care costs, according to the announcement by the U-M Health System (Daly, 2013). The group was launched on January 1, 2013 under the Medicare Shared Savings Program. 12 physician organizations from around Michigan came together to take part in a Medicare-sponsored program that strives to improve on the quality of care for traditional Medicare recipients, while also containing cost growth. In 2014, POM ACO expanded to include all the University of Michigan faculty physicians and thousands of other providers from the University of Michigan Health System. The POM ACO is now one of the largest accountable care organizations nationwide. More than 5,700 physicians and other providers are now involved in the POM ACO. Therefore, the POM ACO is organized as a physician-hospital organization. Hence, the patient has more flexibility in where and how their care is delivered. The patient can still use any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare at any time.

I was bullied throughout middle school and it ate me alive. My life revolved around thoughts of how I was not good enough for today's "society". I became shy, anxious, and clinically depressed.
