Accountable Care Organization

Summit Pacific recognizes that the cost of health care is rising and the same old way of doing business will not work for years to come. Therefore, the health care providers of Summit Pacific Medical Center and its three primary care clinics have joined forces with Medicare to improve the quality of your healthcare while focusing on lowering costs. This new partnership has resulted in Summit Pacific Medical Center becoming a Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO). An ACO is a new approach to taking care of our Medicare Fee-for-Service patients and allows our providers to focus on quality and the relationship with each patient and their family.

What is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO)?

An ACO allows your providers to work with other clinicians in the community to make sure you receive appropriate care, without repeating tests and answering the same questions over and over. An ACO also means that if you have multiple health issues, you may be able to use our care coordinator services. Our care coordinator will work with your provider to make sure you have a care plan that addresses all of your health needs.
