Seton Health Alliance, UnitedHealthcare Form Central Texas' First Commercial ACO

Austin, Texas-based Seton Health Alliance, a Pioneer accountable care organization that is a partnership between Seton Healthcare Family and other providers, has partnered with UnitedHealthcare for the first-ever commercial ACO in central Texas.

This ACO collaboration will include resources and providers from Seton Healthcare Family, Austin Regional Clinic, Lone Star Circle of Care and community physicians. Providers in the ACO will receive monthly patient updates to better monitor patient care. The providers will also keep all clinical information about their patients in a single electronic medical record.

The providers can receive payment incentives based on improvements in certain measures, such as readmission rates, disease management and prevention, patient safety and care delivery.
