Employers

Spiraling health care costs are a problem. And, that’s why we’re teaming up with providers and hospital systems across the country to create Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).

Together, we can change health care for the better through:

  • Collaboration
    Working with providers, employers and members to improve the health care system
  • Aetna Whole Health plan design
    Designing health benefits solutions to help you control costs and make the system work harder for you and your employees
  • Cost efficiencies
    Sharing technology, tools and insight to enable providers to deliver better patient care at a significantly lower cost for you and your employees

Better health, better care, better cost

In an ACO, providers are rewarded to keep members healthy, not to just treat them when they’re sick. Through better technology, tools and the latest clinical guidelines, doctors, nurses and members can make better health care decisions. The goal is to keep healthy members healthy. And, to identify and treat those at risk for conditions like heart disease and diabetes.

So with an ACO you can get better health and better care at a lower cost. Take a look at the results below and see how an ACO in Maine1 did it. By better communicating and coordinating with other providers and members, they improved their members’ care and:

  • Reduced hospital readmission rates by 45% and 30-day readmission rates by 56%
  • Decreased hospital days per 1,000 patients by 50%
  • Lowered per member costs by 33%, as compared to unmanaged members
