A New Way – Where Quality Reigns:
At Seton Accountable Care Organization (Seton ACO) we have a big idea for Central Texas. It is one in which your health care is friendlier, more connected and a lot more in harmony. We are developing a system in which:
- Your primary care doctor plays a central role as leader of your health care team; the focus is on prevention and wellness.
- Your health care team aims to reduce duplicative tests, procedures and admissions and re-admissions to the hospital, as well as the number of visits to the emergency room.
- Special services are designed to assist those with chronic, critical health conditions.
- Health care is coordinated along the entire continuum of care—from your primary physician's office to your stay in the hospital to your admission to a skilled nursing facility to your convalescence at home.
Seton ACO was selected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in its Medicare Shared Savings Program, providing access to ACO programs and services to some Medicare beneficiaries.
