An Accountable Care Organization...

is a group of doctors and other health care providers who voluntarily work together with Medicare to provide:
• High-quality service and care
• At the right time
• In the right setting

If your doctor participates in an Accountable Care Organization (ACO), he or she will work closely with other doctors and health care providers to coordinate care for those who have traditional Medicare. 

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.
