Value of ACA Coding Improvement: Market Share and Market Effects
The Delaware Valley ACO: Key lessons learned in our first two years
The Delaware Valley Accountable Care Organization (DVACO) in Pennsylvania is owned by Main Line Health, Jefferson University and Hospitals, Holy Redeemer Health System, Doylestown Health, and Magee Rehab, with a stated purpose to enhance the quality of health care and reduce the growth rate of health care costs by acting as a convener, accelerator, and provider of the foundation needed to assist its participating members to transition from fee for service model, a business model focused on volume to a model focused on population health.

DVACO operates under the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and is the regionís largest Medicare ACO with more than 670 primary care physicians and over 107,000 Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries. DVACO's MSSP participation has generated shared savings, and DVACO's Humana members have experienced a ten percent increase in medication therapy adherence and a four percent increase in disease management program participation. The DVACO Humana arrangement has recently been expanded and includes value-based incentives tied to performance improvement and quality outcomes, emphasizing standard measures defined by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS), including breast cancer screening, colorectal screening, comprehensive diabetes care, and high-risk medications. DVACO participates in other private payer programs as well.
