The purpose of this qualitative Exploratory, Single, Imbedded Case Study was to explore and describe the primary executive leadership skills required to promote the effectiveness of Medicare Shared Savings Accountable Care Organizations (MSSP ACOs). The ultimate goal of the research was to generate a new substantive theory describing and incorporating these primary executive leadership skills. The collected data were analyzed using the Grounded Theory Method (GTM). GTM was used not only for generating a new substantive theory, but also to obtain methodological triangulation that could enhance the trustworthiness of the research findings. To obtain data triangulation, I used three different sources of data. They included in-depth, one-on-one, semi-structured interviews, a focus group discussion, as well as archival data. The data collection and interpretation helped to answer the research question: What primary executive leadership skills are required to promote MSSP ACO effectiveness? To support the central research question, the research sub-question was: What are the key elements of an MSSP ACO healthcare structure that require new leadership skills? A purposeful sample of 18 MSSP ACO executives achieved data saturation for this study. Categories, subcategories, and the core category emerged in the study and gave rise to the substantive theory–The Accountable Healthcare Leadership Theory of Five Ps: Promoting Partnership between Providers, Patients, and Payers. This theory emphasizes the importance of collaboration between all internal and external stakeholders to ensure the organization’s success in the context of the VBCD environment.
