Presbyterian Healthcare Services and UnitedHealthcare Collaborate to Improve Patient Care in New Mexico

Presbyterian Healthcare Services and UnitedHealthcare are launching an accountable care organization (ACO) to improve care coordination and enhance health services for more than 12,300 New Mexico residents enrolled in UnitedHealthcare’s employer-sponsored health plans. The partnership builds on efforts by both organizations to shift New Mexico’s health care system to one that rewards quality and value instead of the volume of procedures performed. UnitedHealthcare will complement Presbyterian’s own data by providing additional support to manage overall population health, including technology and information that will enable care providers to take specific actions that improve quality and lower costs. This may include data on patient profiles, specific quality gaps, and real-time Emergency Department and inpatient admissions. Patient navigators may also be used to support community-based care coordination, such as helping with transition plans after a patient is discharged from the hospital.
