Efforts to Promote New Accountable Care Organization Now Under Way
Published June 30, 2014
Providence and Swedish have formed a new accountable care organization (ACO) in the Puget Sound region to work directly with employers and other purchasers of health care. As we announced on June 13, Boeing is the first employer to sign on with the ACO, which has formally been named the Providence-Swedish Health Alliance. We look forward to partnering with more companies in the near future. To raise awareness about our ACO among the business community, we will air sponsorships on KUOW, KPLU and Classical KING-FM, over the next few weeks.
