1,800 Michigan Doctors Launch Effort To Improve Health Care For Medicare Patients

Additional quotes:

"POM ACO is a true model of health care innovation; organizing a diverse collection of physician organizations dedicated to improving cost, quality and the patient care experience. Oakland Southfield Physicians is pleased to be part of this team and we are ready to transform health care together," says Jerome Frankel, D.O., president and medical director of Oakland Southfield Physicians.

"Together with CarePath Partners, our closely affiliated physicians, Advantage Health/Saint Mary's Medical Group comprises nearly one-third of this new ACO. We are thrilled with the opportunity to work with the University of Michigan to gain greater insights into advanced patient care in this new model. We believe this will provide us with the opportunity to improve care and that this partnership will accelerate learning for all parties," says Dave Blair, MD, president, Advantage Health/Saint Mary's Medical Group.

"POM ACO participation will facilitate the delivery of high quality, coordinated, cost-effective medicine to our patient population," says Michael Williams, M.D., President and CEO of United Physicians, Inc., Michigan's largest physician organization. "Through proactive patient engagement and collaborative patient care, this physician led ACO will support physician members and enable them to make better, more educated clinical decisions at the point of care, reduce healthcare costs by eliminating unnecessary and redundant procedures and test, and enhance the overall health of Michigan's Medicare-enrolled population."
