Arizona Care Network and UnitedHealthcare are launching an accountable-care organization (ACO) to improve care quality and reduce costs for nearly 15,000 Phoenix-area residents enrolled in UnitedHealthcare’s employer-sponsored health plans.

The new ACO, which launched May 1, will help shift Arizona’s health care system from one based on volume of care to one that rewards quality and value. Arizona Care Network and its affiliated physicians will manage all aspects of patients’ care, providing the right care in the right place at the right time.
