Accountable Care Organization

The St. Thomas Medical Group ACO provides coordinated care to ensure you get the right care at the right time.

 

Because your physician participates in an accountable care organization, it provides you with coordinated health care by your chosen providers and specialists to ensure you receive the highest standard of collaborative care by expert physicians and care teams.

 

Your physician’s participation in the ACO allows him or her first hand access to your medical history, treatments, surgical and diagnostic procedures and history.

 

The Physicians and care teams of St. Thomas Medical Group want your involvement in your own decision-making and wellness planning.

 

With your personal involvement, we can improve outcomes by giving you the tools, resources and people you need to help you make the right decisions.

 

When an ACO succeeds in both delivering high quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely, the savings will benefit the Medicare program that will enable the program to continue providing patients with optimum coverage.
