Florida Accountable Care Services (FACS) and UnitedHealthcare announced this week a joint-collaboration to introduce an accountable care program to help the enhancement of patients’ health and overall health care satisfaction.

The program will go live on April 1 and will be dedicated to providing further resources toward the coordination of care. This will make the process of sharing vital health information easier so multiple doctors involved in a patient’s care are following the same treatment strategy.

Many patients who have visited the doctor or hospitals have received duplicate tests or care because they are responsible for communicating information to each of their doctors themselves. This has affected mainly patients with complex or chronic illnesses.

The plan between FACS and UnitedHealthcare could prevent overlaps like this in the future. As it stands, there are more than 20,000 people currently registered in UnitedHealthcare’s health plans that cover individuals or are sponsored by employers that could benefit from the program.

More than 350 primary care doctors and specialists belong to FACS, which was created four years ago by independent physicians and local health experts to help run Accountable Care Organizations. FACS offers tools, services and technical support to help physicians provide quality care.
