Aledade recruiting to launch 2 physician-led ACOs in West Virginia, Tennessee

Bethesda, Md.-based Aledade announced Wednesday two new partnerships with local organizations in Tennessee and West Virginia to help independent primary care physicians to set up Medicare accountable care organizations.

Aledade will work with each of the following organizations to recruit a core group of primary care practices to launch an ACO in their respective states, and will later provide administrative and transformation services to help support ACO operations.

  • West Virginia Medical Institute, based in Charleston, W. Va., will provide onsite consultation and IT support for physicians to optimize EHRs, secure data and set up analytics processes during ACO implementation. Recruitment will be initially focused on Charleston and expand to other areas of the state in the next several months.
  • Qsource, based in Memphis, Tenn., will be a primary local contact to support the implementation of systems and workflows that support care coordination in the new ACO. Recruitment will be initially concentrated in Chattanooga, Nashville, Knoxville and Memphis, and later expand to other areas of Tennessee.

Aledade currently operates three ACOs in four states: Delaware, New York, Maryland and Arkansas.
