UnitedHealthcare, Aurora team up for a Medicare Advantage ACO

Milwaukee-based Aurora Health Care and UnitedHealthcare of Wisconsin are rolling out an accountable care organization for more than 40,000 Milwaukee residents with Medicare Advantage.

Under the agreement, Aurora Health Care, an integrated health system covering 30 different communities in Wisconsin and northern Illinois, will team up with UnitedHealthcare to better coordinate patient care, manage chronic conditions and encourage healthy lifestyles.

The two organizations will share technology and data to supplement their clinical efforts.

"Our focus is on helping our people live well, and we know that by leveraging our care management philosophy with population health analytics we can help increase quality and efficiency of patient outcomes while reducing redundancy and healthcare costs," Titus Muzi, Aurora Health Care's senior vice president of managed care contracting, said in a statement.
