The Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is emerging as one of the more dynamic models in the new healthcare landscape and is designed to improve outcomes and reduce the total cost of care for managed populations. ACOs offer population health management programs across their communities using a variety of components, including closing preventive care and chronic disease care gaps, care management and coordination, and optimization of healthcare utilization.
As ACOs develop, the importance of fully embracing a population health management model for care delivery is clear. Leveraging available patient data longitudinally to proactively transform the care delivery system from one focused on episodic services to one committed to proactive and coordinated care is the key to continued growth and organizational success.
Philips Wellcentive works with new and established federal and commercial ACOs to ensure organizations are leveraging the benefits of a comprehensive population health management model to drive their value-based care delivery transition. Leveraging over 10 years of experience, Philips Wellcentive provides the products and services our ACO customers need to aggregate their clinical and claims data, analyze that data, and take actions to reduce overall costs, readmissions and unnecessary utilization, enhance patient engagement, and improve care outcomes.
