The Health Choice Preferred accountable care organization exists to support both affiliated and independent healthcare providers, to alleviate their administrative burdens, and to streamline their delivery of healthcare.
The accountable care model promotes a collaborative, efficient care model that leads to better outcomes and lower costs. Providers also have the opportunity to participate in shared financial incentives.
Advantages of the ACO Model
Health Choice Preferred enables physicians to align with other high quality specialists, hospitals and ancillary partners. This model rounds out members’ care teams, improves data information sharing between providers, and minimizes friction in the referral process. This arrangement also helps establish quality of care expectations across providers and improves the ability to monitor and control medical costs.
