Cigna, Health Choice Preferred roll out ACO

Phoenix-based Health Choice Preferred, an accountable care organization and division of Franklin, Tenn.-based IASIS Healthcare, is teaming up with Cigna to roll out more coordinated care for more than 16,000 patients with commercial health plans in Utah.

The collaboration, which marks Cigna's 142nd collaborative care arrangement, aims to improve patient outcomes and support population health management by tying value-based incentives to performance improvements.

"Health Choice Preferred looks forward to working with Cigna to transform patient care and build a more effective, sustainable model of healthcare delivery in Utah," Mike Uchrin, CEO of Health Choice, said in a statement. "By implementing a system that rewards quality of care, rather than the volume of services, together we believe we can improve health, lower healthcare costs, and increase satisfaction for both patients and providers."
