Franciscan ACO, Inc., provides coordinated, comprehensive care across hospitals, physician practices and other healthcare providers to enhance the healthcare experience of patients under our care. Since 2011, Franciscan ACO, Inc., (formerly Franciscan Alliance ACO) has developed innovative care models. Currently participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP), Franciscan ACO, Inc. has expanded to also include Accountable Care Organization partnerships with Medicare Advantage and commercially insured patient populations.
Within each of these programs attributed patients, known as beneficiaries, receive the added benefit of a more coordinated care experience. This includes coordination of preventive health services and care coordination support for persons with chronic health conditions, such as diabetes and congestive heart failure. Care coordination services are provided through the ACO. Better yet, beneficiaries maintain the ability to see any doctor or healthcare provider of their choice within their insurance plan, as well as the full benefits associated with their covered insurance benefits.
