MIDWEST INDEPENDENT PRACTICE ASSOCIATION'S ACCOUNTABLE CARE ORGANIZATION (MIPA'S ACO)

Mission:

The mission of MIPA's ACO is to accelerate the provision of the highest quality of medical care to our patients in a cost-effective and efficient manner while supporting the independent medical practices so that they may not only survive but thrive.

Goals:

  1. Develop an interdependent network of physicians and health care providers focused on improving the quality of care delivered while decreasing the total cost of care.
  2. Improve patient and provider satisfaction.
  3. Demonstrate that the value (quality + access + satisfaction/cost) of medical care provided by independent practices is the best care available for the consumer. 
  4. Establish a program to evaluate quality outcomes and appropriate utilization of services and modify practice patterns by the physician participants.
