United Medical Selected as a Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO
June 17, 2016
United Medical Accountable Care Organization (UMACO) has been selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as one of 100 new Medicare Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). UMACO's care network is based on Cerner’s clinically integrated electronic health record (EHR) system, which offers a one-record experience that unites over 180 providers and more than 225,000 patients. Cerner’s EHR enables UMACO physicians to deliver more coordinated, team-based, value-conscious care while they address the care needs of elderly, adult and pediatric members.
“Our goal is to help our affiliated physicians provide the best care possible while maximizing reimbursements and improving the overall financial health of the organizations we serve,” said Kemal Erkan, CEO, UMACO. “Without Cerner’s health care information technology and support, it would have been difficult to become a Medicare Shared Savings ACO.”
