Supporting ACO Cost Reductions Through ED Care Collaboration

St. Luke’s is Idaho’s first Medicare accountable care organization (ACO), pioneering the shift from fee-for-service care to a value-based model focused on quality and accountability of care. The organization relies on care collaboration to coordinate patient care—saving roughly $1 million in care costs within its first eight months of implementation.
