Reinventing how primary care is paid.
Beyond just fee for service, participants in high-performing ACOs are rewarded for improving outcomes, receiving a share of the cost savings created, regular care coordination payments and bonuses for higher quality care.
Delivering tools for a successful business.
ACOs help empower their members to create value by providing the information, technology and tools needed to deliver even better care, more efficiently.
We were at the point of having to make some hard choices about our future. I have to admit, we were pretty skeptical about the ACO model at first. But when I started talking with Aledade about value-based care and what it could do for our practice, it became clear to me very quickly that joining an ACO wouldn’t be a hard choice at all.

Increasing payer revenues through quality care delivery.
ACOs advocate for clients with payers, offering access to preferred terms and aligned incentives that get better over time. Value created is passed from the payer to ACO members.
Taking on more risk, while protecting you from the downside.
ACOs are risk-bearing entities that contract with payers in risk-reward, value-based agreements. Most ACOs take on the financial downside risk for members.
Proving value beyond just Medicare.
Some ACOs focus on only traditional Medicare, others only on Medicare Advantage, some for Medicaid, few for Commercial. ACOs should be able to help practices better manage patients, regardless of their coverage.
