Accountable Care Organizations

Healthcare Providers Can Deliver Quality vs Quantity with Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)

HEALTHCAREfirst believes providers can be successful under the new ACO initiative by preparing for the future now. Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are going to be looking for ways to decrease costs, increase outcomes, and be more efficient. An ACO infrastructure is necessary to facilitate success in a Care Cycle Management model.

Our ACO infrastructure begins with firstCPO a physician portal that allows physicians to communicate with home health agencies, hospices, labs, and much more to manage accountable care through a single web-based login.

Next, we provide a system that combines traditional telemonitoring for the most chronic patients with other patient engagement methods such as automated Interactive Voice Response calls to cover the entire chronic patient population. Telemonitoring is not currently paid for as a visit from Medicare. However, there are additional benefits for an agency that uses this technology including:

- Daily patient contact and improving patient outcomes
- Less mileage and travel time reimbursement for nurses
- More data points for a physician to see a true patient picture
- Increased physician confidence in the home health agency

Also, we have a Business Intelligence product that will provide the evidence of your agency’s good outcomes and practices. This is essential for home health agencies who will be tasked with not only achieving these goals, but also proving it to their ACO managers.
