Who We Are
An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a group of healthcare providers (primary care physicians, specialists, and hospitals) who work together to provide patients with high quality coordinated care. The Hackensack Alliance ACO was approved by CMS through the Medicare Shared Savings Program for the April 1, 2012 startup date. By participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, the Hackensack Alliance ACO is held accountable to achieving the following goals:
Reduce the per capita cost of healthcare (Lower costs)
Improve the experience of care for individuals (Better experience, Improved access)
Improve the clinical outcomes of patient populations (Improved quality)
In order to accomplish these goals, Hackensack Alliance ACO has developed a series of strategies for financial and clinical systems integration. This integration will allow providers to improve their performance while maximizing quality and efficiency of care.
The Hackensack Alliance ACO is dedicated to delivering seamless, high quality care for our patients. By improving the partnership between patients and providers, practicing evidence based care management, and increasing the access to care, we will achieve cost savings that demonstrate increased value from health care spending.
