Models of Collaboration

From clinical integration to risk management, we can help you achieve your unique goals for accountable care

Each health care organization faces unique challenges in the transition to value-based care. Accountable Care Solutions from Aetna works closely with you to help identify your organization’s specific needs and determine how we can best work together to meet your clinical and business goals.

The scope and focus of our collaboration depends on your immediate and long-term goals.

  • Is your organization ready for a transformed care-delivery model?
  • Do you simply want to improve aspects of care for a single identified population?
  • Are you looking to manage risk and diversify your revenue streams?

Let's select a model that meets your needs.

Whether or not you choose to assume risk in your value-based care model, we can design a model of collaboration to help you succeed:

  • Full accountable care organizations (ACOs) - Medicare and commercial
  • Medicare-only options (Medicare Shared Savings Program, Pioneer ACO Model)
  • Bundled payment pilots
  • Patient-centered primary care initiatives
  • Readiness for value-based care (clinical integration and care management foundation)
  • Co-branded, value-based health plans

Proven. Transformative, Comprehensive.

To help acheive success in these models, we offer a balanced model that advances your organization's operations and growth opportunities.
