The Johns Hopkins ACG® System
When seeking to improve the health of a population, you need a proven analytics tool to help you understand your populations’ health, set budgets or capitation rates, evaluate provider performance, and assess outcomes of care.
The Johns Hopkins Adjusted Clinical Groups® (ACG) System is a unique morbidity measuring approach that improves accuracy and fairness in evaluating provider performance, identifying patients at high risk, forecasting health care utilization and setting equitable payment rates. It is available for all types of users, including those from the commercial, governmental, and academic spheres.

The ACG System provides a framework for evaluating patients’ and population’s morbidity burden. Patient risk in the form of categories and relative risk scores can be applied both concurrently and prospectively.
