Overview

Overview

What's an ACO?

An ACO is a group of health care providers, including doctors, hospitals, and other medical professionals, who partner to provide coordinated, high-quality care to the Medicare patients they serve. Through coordinated care networks like ACOs, we focus on ensuring Medicare patients, especially the chronically ill, receive the right care at the right time by working together to avoid unnecessary duplication of services and prevent medical errors.

How ACOs work

  • Integrated Care: ACOs consist of a network of local health care providers that agree to work together to provide Medicare patients with high quality, coordinated care.
  • Focus On You: Your health care providers will be better able to keep focus on your care, listen and honor your choices, and keep you informed.
  • Improved Communication: Doctors and other providers within the ACO network will have access to your Medicare medical information. Ensuring the medical professionals providing your care are all looking at the same information will improve communication between health care providers while partnering with you in making health care decisions.
  • Less Paperwork: ACO network providers have access to a centralized electronic health record for patient information, which means you may spend less time filling out medical forms.
  • Fewer Tests: Because your doctors and hospitals will share information and coordinate your care, you’ll likely have fewer duplicate medical tests.
  • Flexible Care Network: One of the differences between an ACO and HMOs, managed care, or some insurance plans, is that an ACO can't tell you which health care providers to see and they can't change your Medicare benefits.

How ACOs share information

Cleveland Clinic Florida Integrated Health doctors will have access to your Medicare medical information and use it to help improve how they provide care. By accessing centralized patient data, health care providers will be reviewing the same information which may include your medical conditions, prescriptions, and visits to the doctor. Health care professionals will be working together to coordinate your care and provide the right care at the right time in the right setting. Doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers collaborate to authorize care, avoid duplicate medical services, reduce delays, and prevent errors.  The privacy and security of your medical information is protected by federal law. You'll continue to get the same rights enjoyed by all people with Medicare.

Declining to share your health information

We value your privacy and understand how important it is to safeguard your information.  While we believe that having access to your Medicare information is the way to provide the best care possible, you control how your personal information is used.  To prevent Medicare from sharing your personal information with Cleveland Clinic Florida Integrated Health:
