MAXhealth Announces Receiving a Quality Score of 92.06% While Earning $5.5 Million in Savings
Achievement places primary care clinics within the top 40 of ACOs in the US
Sarasota, FL (September 17, 2018) MAXhealth, a member of the greater Subsero Health primary and specialty care network, today announced that it received from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) a quality score of 92.06 percent.
“Our daily mission is to provide our patients with health care, not sick care,” said Neil Bedi, Chief Executive Officer. “Embracing the standards of value-based care, MAXhealth’s primary care physicians see their patients more often which allows for more long-term preventative care, and then, in turn, lowers the need for hospitalizations and ER visits. This disciplined process creates happier, healthier patients who become active members of their own care team.“
In addition to being recognized for its exemplar quality of care, CMS also reported that MAXhealth earned a savings of nearly $5.5 million dollars for 2017. Per patient, MAXhealth generated $849 in savings, equating to an overall medical cost savings of 7.19 percent. This savings places MAXhealth within the top 5 of all Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) similar in size across the country, and within the top 10 of all ACOs, regardless of size, in the State of Florida.
“The superior quality scores we earned is the result of our ACO’s dedication to value-based care models,” said Scott Clulow DO at Manatee Family Physicians, a member of MAXhealth. “By embracing sustained preventive medicine and closely coordinating our patients’ care, our organization is proof that primary care physicians can serve as vital members of our community by encouraging their patients to make their health their top priority every day, not just when they are ill.”
