Delivering value-based care to Medicare patients.
Accountable care organizations (ACOs) are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers, including senior living communities, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high-quality care to their Medicare patients. Coordinated care helps ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, with the goal of avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors. When an ACO succeeds in both delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely, it will share in the savings it achieves for the Medicare program.
Several Springpoint senior living communities, including Village Point Rehabilitation & Healthcare, have been accepted as members of their local ACOs based on specific criteria, including quality of care, operations, leadership, and cost-effective care. As an ACO participant, Village Point works collaboratively with others to provide a better level of integrated care, reduce hospital admissions, and improve the overall health and well-being of our healthcare residents. While the landscape of healthcare is changing dramatically, Springpoint communities continually discover better ways to deliver quality care.
