Aledade to Create Physician-Led ACO in New Jersey

Bethesda, Maryland-based Aledade, a value-based care network with 15 accountable care organizations (ACOs), is planning to form a primary care physician-led ACO in New Jersey in January 2018.

Aledade will collaborate with the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians for the ACO. As part of the partnership, the company will provide the ACO with software, data, and resources to aid providers’ transition to value-based reimbursement.

Aledade, a McKesson Ventures portfolio company, offers a model that puts primary care physicians where they should be: quarterbacking their patients’ health care. The company works with primary care physicians to build and lead ACOs.
