JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Nov. 26, 2013 - PRLog -- Orange Health Solutions (OHS) was selected by National ACO as their exclusive partner in a mission to increase the quality of the patient experience while at the same time lowering medical costs. This partnership with OHS creates a seamless integration between the team of Los Angeles area physicians within National ACO and the innovative team of patient advocates located within OHS’s virtual care team center in Jacksonville, Florida. “We selected Orange Health Solutions as our exclusive partner because we believe they understand what it takes to succeed in the CMS Medicare Shared Savings (MSSP) program, and have the human and technological resources to accomplish it.  They share our vision for the on-going development, improvement and deployment of our value based primary care focused delivery model designed to deliver value by reducing waste and improving quality,” said Andre Berger, MD, CEO of National ACO, LLC.

National ACO was formed by independent Physicians and healthcare providers from local primary care and family medicine practices in California joining together in order to apply for CMS’s new Medicare Shared Savings Program.  The program was designed to offer higher-quality and cost efficient care to their Medicare Fee for Service patients.

“National’s focus on independent, small-practice providers fits very well with our experience in managing quality and medical costs within other MSSP ACOs,” stated Pam Maxwell, Chief Growth Officer for Orange Health.  “From the first meeting with the executive team we recognized kindred spirits in the aim to change the way healthcare is delivered to patients”.  Together National and OHS will bring greater quality and ease to over 10,000 patients in the greater Los Angeles area.

As part of the requirements for participation in the program, Accountable Care Organizations must meet stringent requirements related to quality standards. The goal of the program is to ensure that medical cost savings are achieved through improving care coordination and providing care that is appropriate, safe and timely. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has established 33 quality measures on care coordination and patient safety, appropriate use of preventative health services, improved care for at-risk populations as well as patient and caregiver experience of care.

National ACO has enlisted the services of Jacksonville, Fla.-based Orange Health Solutions as a way to help ensure success in achieving shared savings. OHS offers healthcare providers the ability to maintain independence and control while providing higher quality coordinated care, improved population health management, greater practice efficiency and increased operating margins. They do this through cutting-edge proprietary technology, an integrated end-to-end service model unique in the industry and a patient-centered culture.
