Abacus

How will an ACO lead to better care for me?

When your health care providers have access to your health information and are able to share that information with one another, they can give you better, more coordinated care. Each of your health care providers won’t only know about the health issues that they’ve treated, they’ll have a more complete picture of your health through communicating with your other health care providers. When your health care providers participate in an ACO, you should see better, more coordinated care over time. With an ACO, you’re the center of care, and your satisfaction is one of their goals.
