Major Healthcare Programs
Pioneer Accountable Care Organization (ACO)
HealthCare Partners Medical Group, HealthCare Partners of Nevada, and JSA Medical Group (a division of HealthCare Partners) were selected to participate in the Pioneer Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Model, an initiative sponsored by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center. The Pioneer ACO Model is designed to encourage the development of ACOs, which are groups of doctors and other healthcare providers. Providers who band together through this model will be required to meet quality standards based upon, among other measures, patient outcomes and care coordination among the provider team.
Brookings-Dartmouth Accountable Care Organization Pilot
HealthCare Partners is one of five medical groups nationally to participate in an accountable care organization (ACO) pilot sponsored by the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at The Brookings Institution and The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. This pilot focuses on improving patient outcomes with coordinated care while slowing the escalating costs of healthcare.
HealthCare Partners offers in-home options for end-of-life care. According to The Atlanitic Magazine, 40 percent or more of elderly patients die in the hospital, where as only 20 percent of HealthCare Partners Medicare seniors die in a hospital.
