Medicare continues to grow. And so do the ever-evolving responsibilities related to effective patient communication, billing inquiries, and other healthcare administrative tasks.
Accountable care organizations (ACOs) are a key aspect in improving Medicare’s total continuum of care. From following up with patients to screenings and even satisfaction surveys, ACOs are considered the front-line for the three Ps of Medicare transactions:
- Patients – most ACO patients are Medicare beneficiaries, although larger ACOs include non-Medicare patients.
- Payers – while Medicare is the primary payer for ACOs, others include other types of health insurance, from both private and employer-based programs.
- Providers – includes hospitals, physicians, clinicians, and other healthcare professionals.
Only a few years ago, ACOs were a relative newcomer on the healthcare scene. Today, hundreds of ACOs serve millions of Medicare patients all across the country. As the role of ACOs within Medicare change, it helps to have a robust patient outreach strategy to optimize messaging, confirm appointments, utilize patient feedback, and much more.
TeleDirect, a preferred business process outsourcing (BPO) solution for both private and public companies, can benefit your ACO in a multitude of ways.
