The MercyCare Accountable Care Organization supports an environment of continuous improvement with the goal of maximizing quality, improving health of populations and reducing costs of care.
Newly formed, the MercyCare Accountable Care Organization was created for the purpose of increasing quality, lowering costs and creating a healthier community, which aligns with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Triple Aim. We are developing and implementing evidence-based care and best practices for keeping populations healthy.
Providers support and engage in quality assurance and improvement programs that will improve patient health and reduce medical costs. Our analysis of internal and payer data has led us to focus on quality improvement efforts in the following areas:
