Maury Regional Health Network
 

What is an ACO?

An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a network of doctors and hospitals that share financial and medical responsibility for providing care to patients in hopes of limiting unnecessary spending and creating a system that is more efficient and effective in improving positive health outcomes. An ACO provides a method in which each piece is intertwined together into a network for one common goal, a better continuum of care.

Population Health is Essential to ACOs

As an ACO system migrates towards value-based care, they need to make sure they can sustain it. Most organizations are proactively pursuing chronic disease management programs, care integration strategies, and patient engagement techniques that will help to reduce costs and improve the quality of care. As integrated delivery systems are asked to do more than focus on their own patients, they will require realignment of existing programs, a return on investment from effective preventive care, and collaborative relationships with existing community and public health organizations.
