The Hackensack Alliance Accountable Care Organization (ACO) was established to participate in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP), which is designed to reduce the growth in Medicare expenditures through the development of a patient centered care model that focuses on providing high quality services and medical care.
Our mission is to provide Medicare Fee-for-Service patients with high quality service and medical care, while reducing the growth in care expenditures through enhanced care coordination, preventive care, patient empowerment and practices supported by medical research.
In order for Medicare Fee-for-Service patients to receive quality care that makes a positive difference, Hackensack Alliance ACO physicians must work closely with patients, family members and other providers to coordinate care across medical specialties and care settings. Patient centered care requires Hackensack physicians to transform and improve all aspects of the healthcare experience for the individual patient as well as the population.
In the interest of our Medicare Fee-for-Service patients, Hackensack physicians are dedicated to providing patients with quality medical care that includes: patient and family education, better access to care, efficient processes, and evidence based care coordination.
