AN OVERVIEW OF

ACCOUNTABLE CARE ORGANIZATIONS

Discover how ACOs like the Nebraska Health Network are working to strengthen patient care, reduce costs and improve quality outcomes. 

What is an Accountable Care Organization?

Accountable Care Organizations are networks of physicians and other health-care providers who share financial and medical responsibility for patients. Together, we focus on what matters most to patients.

Factors like:

  • Ensuring a quality care experience
  • Helping you proactively manage your health, and
  • Finding ways to lower your health-care costs

In addition, we look at the entire ACO network to identify population health trends that help us proactively address the needs of our community.
