Teaching participants about payment models that reward improved community health has produced an average increase of 5-7% inpatient revenue, 10-17% outpatient revenue, and $250-$500 per patient wellness revenue for our ACOs.
We offer solutions to care coordination and scalable, data-based predictions about disease progression, management, and prevention. This leads to increased engagement among clinicians and with existing and new patients.
We continually gather, study, and report on data collected from within and beyond our ACOs to ensure participating organizations have actionable information that yields improved care at lower costs.
Nurse-driven ACO models are more successful and sustainable, clinically and financially. We train population heath nurses to lead preventive care, chronic care management, care planning, and behavioral health integration.
Our expert staff, vast ACO network, templated legal documents, turnkey systems, and on-demand resources and expertise allow ACO participants to optimize care delivery and improve patient outcomes.
Organizational change is hard, but necessary. We ease this burden and support staff at all levels of your organization by employing our effective communication, education, and onboarding processes.

We Have the Roadmap to ACO Success

We see the need and value of ACOs very clearly, and we’re glad you do too. In our work with hospitals and health systems nationwide, we help our partners create and sustain ACOs that improve the health of their communities by improving quality and lowering total costs – all while generating new outpatient revenue and population health success.
Hospitals Can’t Afford to Fail in Population Health Programs
Physicians become engaged when ACOs succeed, and they disengage when they fail. What most people don’t know is that success or failure is driven by two things: managing patients better than the national fee-for-service average and having enough lives to remove statistical variation.
Hospitals Have to do These Six Things for ACO Success

  1. Ease physician burden by empowering population health nurses.
  2. Define and track performance rigorously and transparently.
  3. Enhance primary care with practice improvement managers and training.
  4. Leverage big data to sustain success.
  5. Engage staff at all levels in changes and processes.
  6. Eliminate random statistical variation – unite ACOs to cover 100K+ lives.
