We’re strengthening and consolidating existing UW Health business development and decision-making processes to support the development of sustainable, value-based programs that align care models with payment models.
The UW Health Accountable Care Organization (ACO) was developed to catalyze population health priorities, most centrally the development of population health management programs that aim to improve quality of care and health outcomes for patients.
In order to sustain these programs, UW Health is seeking and embracing value-based reimbursement models, including:
- Government Programs
- Medicare Value-Based Payment
- Medicare Shared Savings Program
- Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) Grants
- Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Model
