As Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) begin to change the patient care model nationwide, coordination of care between acute and post-acute care providers is an important component for ACO success.
ACOs will need to partner with Long Term Care (LTC) pharmacies, Home Infusion and Specialty pharmacies, HME and Respiratory providers, and Long Term Care facilities including Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living and Rehabilitation facilities.
To address this issue, Managed Health Care Associates, Inc. (MHA), a health care services and technology company focused on alternate site health care providers, has announced the formation of the MHA ACO Network. MHA says that by working with both Commercial and Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), the MHA ACO Network will provide access to the largest national network of alternate site post-acute care providers in the country. – For more information, visit www.mhainc.com.
