KentuckyOne Health Partners highlighted on list of top ACOs in U.S.

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - For the second year in a row, KentuckyOne Health Partners, was recognized as one of Becker's Hospital Review's "100 Accountable Care Organizations to Know." 

According to a news release, the list highlights some of the most advanced accountable care organizations (ACOs) in the country. ACOs are groups of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers that come together voluntarily to provide coordinated care to Medicare patients. The goal of an ACO is to ensure patients get the care they need, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors.

This year, the editorial team selected ACOs for inclusion based on the number of physicians involved and lives covered, the lifespan of the ACO, whether it has contracts with multiple payers and whether it recently struck new payer agreements.

"It is truly an honor to be listed yet again among the top ACOs in the country," said Don Lovasz, President of KentuckyOne Health Partners. "Our partners are committed to providing patients with the quality, compassionate care they deserve, while improving the overall health to the Commonwealth."
