Key Findings
  • Early data suggest the program is contributing to improved outcomes for beneficiaries, as the Reliance team can offer resources to bolster the care plan following the ED visit.
  • Reliance’s experience may be informative for ACOs and other health care organizations that are interested in building partnerships with external providers to coordinate care for their beneficiaries.

This case study describes how Reliance Healthcare, an accountable care organization (ACO) in Michigan, has partnered with emergency departments (EDs) to offer care coordination services that improve beneficiaries’ outcomes.
