What’s an ACO?

Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high quality care to their Medicare patients.

The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors. When an ACO succeeds both in both delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely, it will share in the savings it achieves for the Medicare program.

Medicare offers several ACO Programs / Models

Organizations across the country have already transformed the way they deliver care, in ways similar to the ACOs that Medicare supports.

Medicare Shared Savings Program

A program that helps a Medicare fee-for-service program providers become an ACO. Apply Now.

Advance Payment
ACO Model

A supplementary incentive program for selected participants in the Shared Savings Program.

Pioneer ACO

A program designed for early adopters of coordinated care. No longer accepting applications.

PPRNET – Practice Partner Research Network

We believe that measurement is the foundation for improvement, and that what we measure must be as efficient as possible. That is the reason why we joined PPRNET.

PPRNET is a practice based research network out of the Medical University of South Carolina. Our practice RGV Medicine joined PPRNET in 2014, having joined PPRNET has enabled our practice to track quality and identify areas of improvement in the care we give to our patients from quarter to quarter and year to year. Thanks to the qualified analysts at PPRNET our dedicated clinical staff can track more than 62 quality measures on all of our patient population. This process allows us to identify patients who are meeting specific criterions and patients who are not meeting criteria or are not at goal.

The following are some examples of how our practice tracks progress. We want to thank the PPRNET team who approved for us to show this information our website.
