MIDWEST INDEPENDENT PRACTICE ASSOCIATION'S ACCOUNTABLE CARE ORGANIZATION (MIPA'S ACO)
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.
- 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.
- Improve patient and provider satisfaction.
- Demonstrate that the value (quality + access + satisfaction/cost) of medical care provided by independent practices is the best care available for the consumer.
- Establish a program to evaluate quality outcomes and appropriate utilization of services and modify practice patterns by the physician participants.
