Arizona Connected Care …. a new model for a healthier community
Arizona Connected Care is Southern Arizona’s first Accountable Care Organization (ACO). We are comprised of primary care physicians, specialists, Tucson Medical Center and other healthcare providers. Arizona Connected Care offers a new model for providing health care based on simple, straightforward goals and working with the latest available data to establish high quality practices that run throughout our organization.
Arizona Connected Care is one of only 27 ACOs authorized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in April 2012. Our approach is somewhat unique, even among this distinguished group of providers. Arizona Connected Care is a collaborative, physician-driven organization that works in partnership with a local community-based hospital. Physicians hold the majority share of our organization and constitute the majority on our board of directors; and Tucson Medical Center is a valued minority shareholder.
