Last fall Caravan Health was thrilled to share that our ACO partners accounted for 37 percent of shared savings among new ACOs in 2016 with only 17 percent of covered patient lives. Since joining a Caravan-partnered ACO in 2016, Winona Health Services has successfully transformed their care delivery system to achieve outstanding results.

Winona Health Services is a 99-bed health system that serves the Winona, Minnesota area. Under the ACO model, their health system implemented new wellness and prevention components that helped reduce preventable health care conditions in their community.

Through the support of Caravan Health, Winona achieved over 90 percent in most quality measures including Fall Risk Screening and Pneumonia Vaccination Rates. We had a chance to sit down with ACO Champion, Kelly Fluharty, where she shared how they did it.  Watch the video below to hear more about their ACO success story.
