Atlanta-based Emory Healthcare recently announced the creation of an accountable care organization (ACO) with retail giant Walmart, known as the Accountable Care Plan.
Walmart employees at 55 Walmart, Sam’s Club, and Walmart Distribution Center locations in the metro-Atlanta region have been able to enroll in the Accountable Care Plan since Jan. 1, 2018. The employees in the ACO program have access to healthcare services at Emory Healthcare’s seven hospitals and 200 provider locations.
Emory Healthcare is one of the largest clinically integrated networks in Georgia with 2,000 physicians in over 70 specialties, including 240 primary care physicians. The health system draws in over $2 billion in net patient revenue and already participates in three other ACOs, according to data from Definitive Healthcare.
