Blue Shield, Hoag in ‘Accountable Care’ Partnership
Orange County Business Journal

Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, with locations in Newport Beach and Irvine, said it would work with insurer Blue Shield of California on a three-year “accountable care” organization.

The hospital and health plan will be joined by the Greater Newport Physicians medical group in the initiative, which aims to serve some 11,000 Blue Shield HMO members in Orange County.

Accountable care organizations offer incentives for doctors, hospitals and insurers to work together to reduce healthcare costs.
