KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Caravan Health is seeking highly motivated health providers to join the largest accountable care organization (ACO) in the country, the company announced today. High-performing community health systems and providers can apply now to join this groundbreaking collaboration to improve care quality and increase cost efficiency. This opportunity is open to those new to value-based Medicare payment as well as those with prior experience.  

Health providers can be of any size and anywhere in the United States to take advantage of this exciting opportunity. As part of the 90-day application process, providers will be pre-qualified before entering into a contract with Caravan Health and its ACO partners.  

In an ACO, community health systems and providers work together to provide high quality care and improve cost efficiency. Caravan Health-affiliated ACOs have been national leaders in quality and reducing total costs for Medicare, saving the program $54 million in 2017 and returning $15 million of that directly to participants. Caravan Health launched the country’s largest ACO in 2019, bringing together independent physician groups and hospitals, along with smaller ACOs to gain enough scale to achieve even greater and more stable results.  

“Success in this program requires commitment, you can’t do it halfway,” said Tim Gronniger, Chief Executive Officer of Caravan Health. “Our large collaborative ACO has over 225,000 lives and is on track for success in quality and savings in 2019. We want to bring this outstanding model to even more partners and we are looking forward to connecting with new collaborators.” 

Those interested should attend an informative webinar on Tuesday, September 24 at 9:00 a.m. PT/12:00 p.m. ET to learn more about the application process and requirements.
