Prospective Network Participants - OneCare Vermont

Prospective Network Participants

Vision and Description

Vision: The University of Vermont Medical Center and Dartmouth-Hitchcock, the leading academic medical centers serving the state of Vermont, have formed OneCare Vermont and built a network of providers that will coordinate to improve the quality of care while managing the cost of that care for Medicare beneficiaries. OneCare Vermont is a broad network of various types of healthcare providers and provider organizations from throughout the state forming an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) that will participate in any or all shared savings type programs offered through Medicare, Vermont Medicaid and Commercial Exchange plans.

Description: OneCare Vermont will provide tools and support including software, training, data analysis, reporting, and clinical leadership to the network participants. In return, the network participants agree to share accountability for cost and quality performance across the participant network, to provide clinical data for attributed Medicare beneficiaries from their medical record systems, to participate in defined care coordination processes, and to assist in designing and implementing protocols and other interventions to improve outcomes for Medicare beneficiaries.
