An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a group of doctors and other health care providers working together with Medicare to give you better service and care. The goal of an ACO is for your doctors to communicate closely with your other health care providers to deliver high-quality care and meet your individual needs and preferences. The ACO may be rewarded for providing you with high-quality, more coordinated care.
BJC HealthCare was the first in the St. Louis area to become an Accountable Care Organization. BJC has partnered with many physicians and their practices to better coordinate care and improve the health of our community.
