Physician Health Partners seeks to improve the patient care experience and outcomes while lowering associated costs through the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
As part of our participation in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, CMS evaluates ACOs on 33 quality performance measures in the areas of patient and caregiver experience of care, care coordination and patient safety, appropriate use of preventive health services, and improved care for at-risk populations. PHP and our participating providers collaborate with hospital systems, like-minded specialists and community resources to achieve these goals. Medicare shares any savings achieved through improving care coordination and providing appropriate, safe and timely care.
We have a long record of accomplishment with effectively coordinating the quality and cost of care for Medicare patients, and we are hopeful we can continue to make great strides toward improved outcomes through participation in the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
