Aledade launches 2 new partnerships to further ACO efforts

Aledade — a Bethesda, Md.-based company that helps independent physicians launch accountable care organizations — announced two new partnerships this week that support value-based care.

The first of the two partnerships is a first-of-its-kind, with the Mississippi Academy of Family Physicians. This partnership is focused on supporting independent physicians across the state in building a Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO with a focus on high-quality, preventive care and cutting-edge technology. The partnership will help provide in-person support for physicians throughout the setup and operation process.

Aledade also recently formed another partnership with the Arkansas State Health Information Exchange to receive real-time information on patients, including admit, discharge and transfer data. This partnership will give Aledade access to information from 26 hospitals and 317 practices. This will allow providers in Aledade's Primary Care ACO to electronically receive updates when their patients are hospitalized.

"We know that primary care providers have a strong personal connection with their patients," Erica Galvez, HIE lead at Aledade, said in a statement. "But oftentimes even they don't have access to basic data regarding their patients. By partnering with SHARE, we are able to provide basic, real time data so that providers can effectively harness health data to make informed care decisions, improve patient outcomes and drive down healthcare cost."

These two regional partnerships illustrate the continued growth and shift to value-based care.
