Since 2003, ACG® International has seen its reach expand from a single project in Canada to on-going use in several European, Asian, Middle Eastern, and African countries. In addition, numerous pilot and academic projects are underway in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and former Eastern block countries. In summary, ACG International is active on almost every continent.
The ACG® System is currently licensed and used in 14 countries worldwide, demonstrating that the ACG System is not just a “US” solution. While our beginnings come from the US health care system, we have since developed the ability to incorporate local cost structures, coding systems, practice behavior, and language adaptations, as well as the availability of local markers whether they capture socio-economic, functionality, living arrangement, or other dimensions.
Billions of dollars per year are now routinely exchanged using the ACG System, while the practices of hundreds of thousands of physicians in many nations are now more equitably assessed on an ACG case-mix adjusted basis. The health care of millions of patients is actively managed and monitored using the ACG System on several continents. The ACG System has broad applicability within the government and private sectors of many healthcare delivery systems, making the ACG System the most widely used population-based case-mix system in the world.
