Being an ACO member helps improve healthcare, lower costs, and earn providers money
An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) where primary care physicians call the shots is no longer just a dream for Virginia providers concerned about dwindling options for maintaining autonomy. Practices looking to maintain their independence and still be financially secure need to prepare to transition away from fee-for-service payments at the end of 2018, and a viable option for many is to join an ACO.
ACOs allow independent physicians to join a partnership that empowers primary care doctors, boosts the quality of care to patients, and lowers healthcare costs. ACOs that succeed in delivering excellent care and help reduce the costs of healthcare will share in the savings it achieves for the Medicare program.
Through its Practice Transformation Network, Health Quality Innovators is helping providers reach their full potential to prepare for payment changes, and qualify for ACO membership.
