The system runs two active ACOs: Optimus Healthcare Partners and the Atlantic Accountable Care Organization. They have quality metrics for, among other things, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), hospital-readmission reduction, cost savings and reduced length of stay.
Atlantis is applying the ACO model to population health through, as summarized by FierceHealthcare:
- “Risk stratification of the patient population through data analytics to determine what patients need at both an individual and population level
- “Team-based care coordination involving nurses, community resource managers, pharmacists, social workers and discharge planners
- “A health information technology strategy that standardizes all elements of care into one platform and incorporates evidence-based care”
