New Accountable Care Organization Strives to Improve Primary Care in Ohio
The launch of Advantage ACO in Ohio presents a new opportunity for primary care providers in the state to increase revenue opportunities. The ACO will introduce cost-effective, high-quality care management to Ohio, leveraging the extensive experience of Advantage ACO consultants in serving Midwest physicians. For decades, Advantage ACO consultants have been instrumental in helping physicians achieve optimal patient outcomes and value-based care performance. Advantage ACO, will provide dedicated support for providers who serve Ohio’s Medicare patients with process improvement, technology optimization, and value-based care expertise.
“I’ve been with Medical Advantage for over 6 years and in my time here I’ve helped thousands of clinicians improve their performance in a variety of quality programs,” shared Performance Manager Beth Hickerson.
“The Medical Advantage ACO is our latest initiative to support independent physicians, physician groups, and Federally Qualified Health Centers in Ohio and across the country make the most of their participation in the Medicare Shared Savings Program and other quality initiatives,” she added.
Hickerson concluded, “Healthcare is continuously evolving and without proper support, smaller and mid-sized practices can find themselves falling behind. I consider myself privileged to be able to help these providers make the most of the ever-changing landscape.”
By participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, provider members can enjoy increased practice revenue through reimbursements for value-based care. Moreover, Ohio ACO consultants, who possess a comprehensive understanding of quality and cost performance metrics, as well as best practices for program participation, provide support to primary care physicians.
