San Diego Business Journal

Sharp HealthCare said Dec. 19 that it is the only health care group in San Diego and one of 32 nationally that the U.S. government has selected to participate in its pilot program for Pioneer Accountable Care Organizations — a program that’s expected to cut Medicare costs by $1.1 billion in the next five years.

“Through our network of hospitals and affiliated medical groups, Sharp has a long history of successfully delivering coordinated, patient-centered, high-quality care,” Mike Murphy, president and CEO of Sharp HealthCare, said in a statement.
