MetroHealth Engaging Patients Through Care Coordination
Julia Gorecki, Director, Quality and Case Management
This year, The MetroHealth System launched a Medicare Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organization (ACO) called MetroHealth Care Partners.
MetroHeatlh has vast expertise operating a number of population health management programs that have demonstrated excellent results. Those successes generated momentum for formalizing our care model into more ACO offerings for other patient populations.
An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals and health care providers working together with insurers to give patients higher quality, more coordinated care while saving on health care costs. MetroHealth Care Partners works to ensure:
- Better care for individuals
- Improvements in health for populations
- Lower total cost of care
Our ACO accomplishes this by leveraging MetroHealth’s expertise in its health care delivery, clinical informatics and care coordination, always keeping the patient at the center of its focus.
