Statement of Ross Wilson, M.D., CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals ACO in Response to 2015 Medicare Shared Savings Program Performance Results for ACOs
Aug 25, 2016
“For the third year in a row, our ACO has achieved nationally-recognized success under Medicare’s flagship program to improve health and transform health care, through focusing on meeting the health needs of our most vulnerable patients before they require the hospital or emergency room.
Our ability to meet cost and quality targets demonstrates that a public health care system that cares for the most complex patients can achieve the highest standards of performance. Our success also shows what our exceptionally dedicated clinicians can accomplish with the right tools and incentives to meet our population health mission and be effective stewards of public health care dollars.
The ACO provides a blueprint for our broader transformation, bringing together city, state, and federal goals for sustainability and success under value-based payment for all the patients we serve.”
