Accountable Care Organizations

Under the accountable care organization (ACO) model, patient engagement originates with, and revolves around, the primary care provider who is also responsible for referrals to specialized care. IES has considerable experience in triaging patients with chronic diseases away from the emergency room to primary care where they can receive ongoing attention as well as oversight and compliance with their existing medication regimens. This value-driven resource-matching approach to healthcare access, which emphasizes long-term wellness for the patient, is equally beneficial for ACOs.
