Accretive Health Announces Termination Of Its Quality And Total Cost Of Care Services Contract By Fairview Health Services
Accretive Health, Inc. (NYSE: AH) said today that it has received notice of termination from Fairview Health Services of its Quality and Total Cost of Care (“QTCC”) services contract. The terms of the transition have yet to be determined. The Company will update its business outlook on its quarterly earnings call on May 9, 2012.
Accretive Health said that it regrets that the recent activities of the Minnesota Attorney General have created a situation where Fairview felt it necessary to cancel its work with the Company in QTCC. The Company intends to work with Fairview to preserve the good results that have been achieved and will continue to invest in this important area.
Accretive Health also said it has received reiterations of support from other clients who recognize the value of Accretive Health’s ability to help hospitals and other healthcare providers enhance their quality of care. This show of support is consistent with the Company’s mission of being a constructive and positive contributor to the American healthcare system.
