The Accountable Care Coalition of Georgia is designed to reinforce your best efforts by providing:

The Accountable Care Coalition of Georgia has been accepted to participate as a Medicare Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organization (ACO). Our ACO is committed to meeting the three objectives set forth by the Federal government: improved care for individuals; improved health for populations; and, lower growth in expenditures.
Collaborative Health Systems (CHS) will support the ACO with services ranging from health information analytics to care coordination and certain other administrative support.
