Pinnacle Integrated Medicine, Inc. ACO

Pinnacle Integrated Medicine’s ACO is a Medicare Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organization (ACO). Pinnacle Integrated Medicine is one of the first registered B Corporations in the region. Pinnacle’s for-benefit cause is to reduce costs and improve quality across the continuum of care while allowing disparate healthcare organizations to maintain cultural and financial independence.

Pinnacle provides collaborative and accountable care system support to the ACO participant. The model involves health care initiative programs using the team approach with the patient at the center to provide resources for caregivers to offer enhanced and coordinated patient-centered medical home-directed care for patients. Our programs encompass prevention, standardization of evidence-based best practices, community-based care coordination, investments in health information technology, health information exchange, medication reconciliation, and reimbursement incentives for increasing the quality and efficiency of care for patient populations.
