Frequently Asked Questions


What is an ACO?

An accountable care organization (ACO) consists of a group of physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare providers who collaborate to deliver value-based, high-quality care to their Medicare patients. The goal of coordinated efforts and team-based approaches is to ensure patients receive the most suitable care. This includes proactive preventive care which helps to avoid unnecessary duplication of services and medical errors.

How does an ACO work?

When an ACO succeeds in delivering high-quality care and spending healthcare dollars with greater efficacy and efficiency, the ACO will share in the savings it achieves for the Medicare program. These shared savings result in providers, facilities, and healthcare systems receiving funds that can be used to further improve the quality of care with additional resources, additional staff, and improved stability in times of financial uncertainty.

What are the pros of ACOs?

The advantages of participating in an ACO start with the over-arching ability to deliver higher-quality care at lowered costs which not only decreases unnecessary spending but also eliminates and/or helps to reduce replicated tests and procedures. ACO participants utilize a team-based care approach with value-based methodologies which allows physicians the time to spend with more acute patient needs while staff are empowered with more capabilities and time to help patients better understand how to engage in their health and care journey. Medicare experiences less waste to its system and successful ACOs are rewarded with shared Medicare savings which help to continue improved care through additional resources. 

How do ACOs benefit patients?

Patients receive higher quality care at lower costs through value-based care, the core component of an ACO. Participants in an ACO place greater emphasis on preventive care, promoting wellness, and better managing chronic diseases all for the benefit of the patient.

How do ACOs make money?

Providers in an ACO are incentivized to be more efficient and less duplicative in their efforts. When their healthcare delivery is improved by population health methodologies that emphasize value-based care rather than fee-for-service care, ACO participants bring in new population health revenue and earn a share of the savings to Medicare. The larger the ACO, the better the opportunity for substantial financial incentives that are paid directly to the participant. 

What problems do ACOs solve?
At the core of ACOs is a team-based, value-based care approach which focuses on population health. ACOs help to improve the health of their community as well as communication and collaboration between providers in different locations and specialties. There is less duplication of tests and procedures which lowers overall costs. Providers, staff, and patients have improved communication which results in lowered admission rates in both the hospital and emergency department.
How can an ACO work for my organization?
Participation in an ACO provides an underlying financial stability to organizations. As they improve the quality of care through more patient-centric value-based care methods, costs are lowered, unnecessary tests, procedures, and hospital and ED admissions are decreased. Providers experience less burnout due to the team-based care approach and because more time is spent with patients, they are more engaged in their health and more communicative and compliant with their healthcare.
What is the Signify Health Patient Engagement Platform (formerly Wellpepper)?

Signify Health's Patient Engagement Platform, formerly Wellpepper expands patient care beyond the clinic. The platform assists with managing chronic diseases and enables health care systems to deliver highly actionable and engaging mobile treatment plans based on their own best practices and protocols.

The Patient Engagement Platform does the following:

  1. Tracks and monitors patient health data in real-time

  2. Transmits information to health care providers for assessment, and when necessary, provides recommendations and instructions. This allows clinicians to create deeper connections with their patients and simplify workflows.

  3. Patients are empowered to self-report conditions, communicate social determinants of health, and stay on track with their health care goals.

  4. Patient data flows back into Signify Health's Provider Enablement Platform to ensure patients never fall through the cracks.
