Working Together To Provide Improved Healthcare
The JFK Health Accountable Care Organization
The JFK Health ACO is an Accountable Care Organization comprised of more than 200 of the area’s finest physicians – working in conjunction with JFK Health & JFK Medical Center. If you’re a patient living in the Central New Jersey area, your doctor may already be a participating provider in the JFK Health ACO.
As an ACO, our providers agree to be accountable for the quality, cost and overall care of groups of Medicare beneficiaries. The JFK Health ACO offers systems that help physicians coordinate healthcare through improved communication, evaluation and measurement. This approach increases efficiency for patients and physicians alike.
The organization supports its doctors in caring for their patients by ensuring physicians have the most current health information available. This means physician communication is better, patients avoid duplicate tests, and care is coordinated and streamlined, providing every patient a better healthcare experience.
Collectively, the physicians participating in the JFK Health ACO have been serving New Jersey residents for decades, providing quality and compassionate medical care to improve the healthcare outcomes in the surrounding communities.
