The ACO, encompassing 1 unique practices in Pennsylvania with approximately 7,000 assigned beneficiaries, is projected to have saved Medicare roughly $14 million, resulting in approximately $4 million for the ACO's physician participants.

The Aledade App lets us know when our patients are discharged from the hospital. I use this information to reach out to patients and set up Transitional Care Management follow-up visits. During these visits, patients receive education, review medications, and make sure they understand how they need to follow up. As a result of the education we’ve provided, patients have started to call us before they go to the hospital and can often come in for a same-day appointment instead of an expensive ER visit.
The Aledade App has been pretty awesome. With the App we’ve been able to get a lot more information on our patients which has enabled us to prioritize the high-risk patients which is very important. It has really enabled us to go a lot farther than we’ve ever been able to go before. At the end of the day, it’s helping us take a lot better care of our patients. Getting involved has been an excellent step for my practice.
Our experience to date with Aledade has been wonderful. The team that they have formulated is magnificent. It’s a real, nice, collaborative effort and I think because of that we are going to be successful and we are going to experience some shared savings.
Gateway Medical Associates has long been committed to integrating best practices and innovative technology to enable the best possible care for our patients – and partnering with Aledade to form an ACO is the next step.
I am a better physician because of the data I access through Aledade. I know where to focus my attention. I can see where money is going and develop alternatives. For example, we trained one of our nurses as a wound specialist and now rarely send people to the hospital based wound center.
