MultiCare Health System is in the process of establishing an Accountable Care Organization in response to heightened interest. We will continue to update the community on our progress as more information is available.
On Friday, June 13, MultiCare announced its participation in a new regional accountable care network that includes several other health systems. The network will provide coordinated care to a defined patient population while meeting specific quality and safety goals. These accountable care networks help ensure patients receive the appropriate services while reducing the cost of care.
This network, called the UW Medicine Accountable Care Network, includes UW Medicine, Overlake Hospital Medical Center, Seattle Children’s and others. During their open enrollment in November 2014, certain Boeing employees will be able to choose the UW Medicine Accountable Care Network as one of their health care options.
