TPMG is participating in a Medicare program called an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). The TPMG ACO is part of the ACO REACH Model led by UpStream Care Company.
What is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO)?
An ACO is a Medicare program in which healthcare providers work together to improve the quality of care for the Medicare beneficiaries they serve.
TPMG is voluntarily joining an ACO because they wish to find ways to deliver the best care promptly and at an affordable cost. ACO networks allow providers to share clinical information, which helps to improve the coordination of care to their Medicare patients.
