Accountable Care Organization

The Premier HealthCare Network, LLC

A Voice for Independent Practice Since 1994

What is ACO?

Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high quality care to the Medicare patients they serve.

Coordinated care helps ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, with the goal of avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors.

When an ACO succeeds in both delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely, it will share in the savings it achieves for the Medicare program

Who We Are

Premier Health Care Network, LLC (Premier) is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) established in 1994 in Atlanta, GA, originally as an Independent Practice Association (IPA).

Over the years, we have coordinated hundreds of thousands of patients through our agreements with third party payers. We have received awards and bonuses for providing high quality medical care in a cost effective manner.
