New Kentucky Accountable Care Organization Brings Services to Physicians
Medical Advantage is excited to announce the launch of Advantage ACO in Kentucky, which will bring high-quality, cost-effective care to the state’s Medicare patients. Independent practices, group practices, and Federally Qualifies Health Centers will benefit from process improvement, technology optimization, and value-based care consulting from our ACO consultants.
“Working at Medical Advantage has given me the opportunity to support practices in underserved areas, empowering them to care for more patients and be better reimbursed for that care,” shared Advantage ACO Senior Implementation Consultant Stephanie Westbrook.
“I was born and raised in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky and have always loved being a part of a smaller community. Helping these smaller and mid-sized practices in communities like mine stay competitive is important and rewarding work that I’m proud to be a part of,” she added.
Why Advantage ACO in Kentucky?
The healthcare landscape is increasingly difficult to navigate. New competitors enter the market, clinicians face burnout, and payer expectations become more difficult to comply with. We work with our participants to alleviate those stressors through reimbursements from high-quality, coordinated, value-based care that provide essential revenue for practices in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
Improve performance, not only with the Medicare Shared Savings Program, but across all value-based contracts with expert consulting from our ACO consultants. With greater value-based care performance comes increased revenue that can be reinvested into practices to propel their success. This additional revenue can be invested in staff incentives, new technology, or marketing to poise practices for long-term success.
