Arizona Connected Care, Southern Arizona’s first accountable care organization, has worked since 2012 with a goal of creating a healthier community while driving down increases in health care costs.
Our health care delivery organization includes:
Our approach is to support quality care that emphasizes wellness, disease prevention, a proactive focus on chronic disease care and a smooth transition back to the community if a patient is hospitalized.
When health care works the way it should, patients experience more ongoing preventive care and chronic disease management, providers have more supportive coordination of care and actionable data to gauge the quality, cost and utilization of care they deliver, and the health care system that has for so long served as a safety net for people will be more sustainable.
Arizona Connected Care is a physician-driven organization. The board of directors is comprised of physicians, executives of community health centers, patient and community advocates, and hospital representatives. Together, these individuals – and their perspectives – provide a well-rounded approach for decision making for our organization.
