“In 2015, we saved Medicare $14.2M, of which our providers received half. In 2016, our ACO’s first year in Track 3 of the MSSP, we received 75% of the $8.5M we saved. And in 2017, RGVHA generated $9.8M in savings and earned $6.8M.”

Rio Grande Valley Health Alliance’s (RGVHA) ACO, which includes 24 primary care physicians, achieved success by following a few basic rules:
- Hired four nurse care coordinators to care for and meet the needs of high-risk patients between visits
- Built strong physician support
- Used a robust population health management IT solution that provided the data and the analytics to help physicians fill care gaps, understand utilization, and improve performance
