Here is how an ACO will help your doctor coordinate your care:
- Your doctors will be part of a better coordinated team
- You may not have to fill out as many medical forms that ask for the same information
- Each of your doctors will know about your health issues that they have treated, and they will have a more complete picture of your entire health profile by talking with your other doctors
BJC’s Accountable Care Organization is focused on achieving improved patient-centered health outcomes and cost savings by improving care coordination and disease coordination for patients; expanding evidence-based care delivery models; and developing a structure that provides sharing of cost savings, if any, to ACO participants.
