The accountable care organization formed by American Health Network in Ohio is improving care coordination and services to chronically ill patients at home in an effort to keep them out of the hospital. The ACO, which received $300,000 from Medicare to hire extra staff and will pay the money back if enough savings are achieved, hired an actuary to identify the 10% of its patients who would benefit most from care coordination and were likely to help reduce Medicare spending by 10% over three years.
