PCCN’s network of 1000 physicians can be available to 50,000 enrollees in UnitedHealthcare’s Medicaid health plans.
No stranger to accountable care organization arrangements, more than 15 million people are enrolled in UnitedHealthcare plans across the country with care delivered in part through more than 800 accountable care arrangements.
The goal is to combine robust population health analytics and a comprehensive care management program to allow participating PCCN practices the ability to increase quality and efficiency while reducing redundancy and health care costs.
Casey Osborne, Vice President, PCCN, said:
We are enhancing care coordination across care settings, and our new accountable care relationship with UnitedHealthcare enables PCCN to provide improved care to more patients in our community.
