Quality and Performance Management


In order to successfully manage an ACO, you must continuously measure performance, and seek opportunities to improve.  ACO Health Solutions has developed solutions that enable your team to identify gaps in care, and to validate that your process improvements initiatives are being followed. While partnering with ACO's over the last three years, we have optimized the following products to handle CMS's complex rules and data requirements, allowing your ACO to focus on quality care management. 

Quality Registry

ACO Health Solutions Quality Registry Solution will help your ACO manage performance and ensure quality care throughout the year. This solution enables your team to validate that process improvements initiatives are being followed in order to avoid surprises during the annual GPRO Audit process.


Leveraging your claims data, the QR will identify patients within your population that will likely qualify for the annual GPRO Audit. Our flexible solution allows the ACO to either proactively or reactively collect quality metrics via paper or electronic records to allow you to control the care management process. As you collect this data, the system will store this information and provide the ACO updates on performance issues.


AHS has developed a series of performance reports that will identify trends and issues, realtime, as your ACO collects the data. As your ACO matures, fulfilling the CMS quality benchmarks becomes more essential. 


Once identified, the QR will capture clinical quality metrics and store the data for quality reporting throughout the year, and for the annual audit process.  Subscribing to the QR will provide you will all of the services to fulfill the annual GPRO Audit process.
