Phoenix Children’s Care Network and UnitedHealthcare have launched an accountable care program that promotes a team approach to healthcare and improves quality, lowers costs and enhances the coordination of people’s care.
This new accountable care relationship enables PCCN to treat patients using an innovative value-based model focused on keeping people healthy. UnitedHealthcare shares data with PCCN to inform doctors of patients’ underlying medical conditions, past treatments, gaps in care, medications prescribed and future care needs. This takes the burden off the child’s family from having to connect information from each of their doctor’s visits themselves, and reduces duplicative tests and improves care coordination across specialties and care settings.
Through this initiative, PCCN and UnitedHealthcare are able to identify clear, actionable information specific to individual patients’ health needs.
