Higher Quality of Care

Your doctor is good. He looks you in the eye, listens to your concerns and spends time answering your questions. But does your physician know every piece of your health care? Does he know of your visit to the gastroenterologist or details of appointments with your cardiologist? Maybe, maybe not.

Coordination of care becomes increasingly important as patients get older and their health care becomes more complex. Conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and congestive heart failure require constant physician supervision. For these patients, knowing medication interactions and side effects, staying on top of required tests and frequent doctor appointments becomes overwhelming and often confusing.

In January of 2017 Meritus Health was approved by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), as a Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organization (ACO), providing Medicare beneficiaries with access to high-quality, coordinated care in Washington County, Maryland while helping to slow the growth of health care costs. The agreement brings doctors, hospitals, and health care providers together to coordinate the most appropriate care, in the right setting, at the lowest cost possible to Medicare beneficiaries.

For more information about the Meritus Health ACO, talk to your primary care physician, visit www.MeritusHealth.com/ACO or https://www.medicare.gov/Pubs/pdf/11588-Accountable-Care-Organizations-FAQs.pdf.
