Florida Blue-Aledade ACO reports $14M in savings, improved patient outcomes

Aledade, a network of independent primary care providers, and Florida Blue's ACO has resulted in millions in shared savings for participating providers and improved health outcomes for 41,000 members in the program's first two years.

The value-based collaboration led to nearly $14 million in shared savings for 59 participating primary care practices, FQHCs, rural health clinics and multi-specialty clinics, according to a Sept. 7 news release.

Participating providers outperformed the market in rates of control of diabetes, along with screening rates for breast, colorectal and cervical cancers. 

Between year one and two, providers reduced hospitalizations by 15 percent, compared to 7 percent for other practices in their region, and visits to the emergency dropped by 1.8 percent, compared to 0.8 percent.
