ACO

Let’s Talk About Clinical Integration

Clinical Integration

Clinical integration is pretty amazing. It’s not quite an ACO, yet allows a healthcare organizations within a community to loosely associate in order to provide better care for their patients. These hospitals and private practices agree to share data about the patients they care for with one another and agree to practice by defined health initiatives. It’s a way to provide better care across the continuum and also allows for providers to increase their reimbursement.

This means more money coming into hospitals and physician’s offices, which means they can hire more nurses!
