Essentia Health | 100 ACOs to Know 2016

Essentia Health (Duluth, Minn.). Essentia Health launched a Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO in July 2012, and within a year it became one of the first six ACOs in the nation to earn Level 2 ACO designation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. By October 2013, it had achieved the highest point of accreditation, Level 3. When Essentia Health renewed its accreditation as a Level 3 ACO with the NCQA in March, it was one of two U.S. health systems to achieve this designation. Essentia Health is now enrolled in Track 3 of the MSSP program, the most advanced track. This fall, Essentia and Medica plan to roll out a new ACO in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin.
