LAS VEGAS – HealthCare Partners Nevada, a leading physician-run group providing primary, specialty and urgent care services in Southern Nevada, has been included in the list of 100 Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to Know published by Becker’s Hospital Review. The list highlights organizations that practice a collaborative health care model focused on improving patient care and outcomes while lowering costs.
Becker’s Hospital Review is a monthly publication geared toward high-level hospital leaders, offering up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems. This is the third year the publication has published its list of ACOs to Know. There are now more than 625 ACOs in the United States. The editorial team chose the 100 organizations on the list based on number of physicians involved and lives covered, the lifespan of the ACO, whether it has contracts with multiple payers and whether it recently struck new payer agreements.
An ACO is a network of physicians and hospitals that work together to provide patients with coordinated care to avoid redundancies in services and prevent medical errors. Physicians involved in ACOs are compensated based on quality of care provided, patient safety and outcomes, and cost of care.
“HealthCare Partners Nevada has practiced a value-based model that that puts patients at the center and emphasizes prevention for years. We call this the Total Care Model,” said Mike Reed, president of HealthCare Partners Nevada. ”It is an honor to be named alongside so many prestigious organizations dedicated to the same philosophy of health care delivery.”
Other ACOs named on the list include HealthCare Partners California ACO, Johns Hopkins Medicine Alliance for Patients, Penn Medicine and Cedars-Sinai Accountable Care.
The list of 100 ACOs is not an endorsement of the hospitals, health systems or associated health care providers named, and organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list. ACOs included in the list are presented in alphabetical order. To view the complete list, visit http://www.beckershospitalreview.com/lists/100-accountable-care-organizations-to-know-2014.html.
