Centura, UnitedHealthcare launch ACO in Colorado

Englewood, Colo.-based Centura Health and Colorado Health Neighborhoods — Centura's physician provider network — are collaborating with health insurer UnitedHealthcare to launch an accountable care organization aimed at improving the quality of care and reducing healthcare costs for nearly 17,000 UnitedHealthcare members in Colorado.

Under the agreement, CHN's network of more than 2,500 physicians will help manage all aspects of patients' care, with primary care physicians participating in the ACO receiving regular patient updates.

"We believe our collaboration with Centura Health and Colorado Health Neighborhoods will deliver enhanced quality, better outcomes and greater efficiency for our health plan customers statewide," said Beth Soberg, president and CEO of UnitedHealthcare of Colorado, in a news release.
