Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Cigna expanding coordinated care
Dartmouth Hitchcock said it also renamed and trademarked its ACO. It will not be called allwell.
"Health-care delivery will continue to evolve as health-care organizations adapt to health-care
community as we look across the continuum of care," said Dr. Joseph Pepe, president and chief-executive of CMC, in prepared remarks.
CMC, St. Joseph and Exeter joined the ACO as of Jan. 1. Dartmouth-Hitchcock spokesman Rick Adams said patients in an ACO will be notified. They will keep their own doctor, but nurses will ensure a patient's care is coordinated among a patient's various providers.
"By paying more attention to the patient, with a stronger focus on prevention, wellness and care coordination, we'll have a healthier population and lower medical costs," said Dr. Robert Hockmuth, Cigna's senior medical executive for New Hampshire.
