Integrated Care Alliance Chosen as ACO
August 16, 2012
The Integrated Care Alliance, LLC announced today it has been selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as an Accountable Care Organization (ACO).  The ACOs are a transformative new initiative to provide Medicare beneficiaries with coordinated high quality healthcare that is satisfying to the beneficiary and cost effective.

“We are pleased that we were selected by Medicare to be a part of this important initiative,” said Daniel Duncanson, MD, Integrated Care Alliance’s (ICA) Chief Executive Officer. 

“The ICA and Southeastern Integrated Medical (SIMED) have been working toward the ACO goal for almost two years.  However, the focus on coordinated, high quality care is not a new fad for our physicians; it’s been going on for years.  We are enthusiastic about continuing to lead this region by stepping into accountable, coordinated health care.  The goal of coordinated health care is to ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary care and duplication of services, in a manner that takes further steps toward preventing medical errors. 

Our own statistics, as well as national statistics, show that accountable coordination of care leads to reduced healthcare expenditures.  Physicians and patients have to work together if the nation is going to control the rising costs of healthcare.  Coordinated care can improve patient health through patient and family education, identifying earlier the chronic conditions or changes in health status to minimize the risk of preventable complications, emergency room trips or hospitalizations.  The ICA will identify and work with like-minded health care organizations to allow the coordinated care to expand beyond the physician’s office.”


Integrated Care Alliance Chosen as ACOThe selection of the ICA by Medicare was a result of a nationwide call for applications.  The competitive search looked for organizations that have demonstrated the capabilities to offer high quality, coordinated care.  Health care providers who band together through the ACO model will be required to meet quality standards, some of which are based around a positive patient experience and outcomes.  Outcomes are the results of care provided, and are determined by Medicare based on widely accepted standards including preventive health care, and management of certain health conditions.  Medicare will use the ICA’s performance on the quality measures, as a basis for rewarding the ICA for reducing growth in expenditures for the same Medicare population.

The ICA is not a health plan or a managed care plan.  Unlike managed care plans, Medicare beneficiaries will maintain the ability to see any doctor or healthcare provider, and maintain the full benefits associated with traditional Medicare.  The ACO is one of many initiatives being developed by CMS and the new Innovation Center as part of the Affordable Care Act.
