About Us

LHS Health Network Accountable Care Organization (ACO)

Formed in 2013, the LHS Health Network ACO seeks to provide the high value medical care for beneficiaries through coordinated, comprehensive care across physician practices, hospitals, and other healthcare providers. Since 2014, the LHS Health Network has been participating in Medicare programs to improve the care Medicare beneficiaries and also participates in similar programs with certain commercial payors.

LHS Health Network provides high-value care by improving the patient experience and the health of populations and by reducing the costs of care. ACOs are built on strong primary care services. Participating physician groups help create a healthier patient population through a coordinated, accountable approach to care among providers within and beyond the LHS Health Network. ACOs are designed to achieve measured patient quality outcomes and decrease unnecessary and duplicative medical tests and treatments. The federal government promotes the development of ACOs to transform the delivery of healthcare.
