Tucson Medical Center

Commitment Statement:

Tucson Medical Center (TMC) with Arizona Connected Care (ACO) has been engaged in value-based contracts (APM category 3 and 4) since 2012.  We have four contracts in 2016: two Commercial upside-only contracts, one MSSP track 1 and one Medicare Advantage (dual risk).  Tucson Medical Center began a second ACO relationship with Abacus Health Arizona Community Physicians on January 1, 2016.  Tucson Orthopedic and Tucson Medical Center participate in the voluntary Bundled Payment Initiative with Joint Replacement since 2015.  Tucson Medical Center was a founding member of the Health Care Transformation Task Force.  TMC also has a successful self-funded health care policy (APM category 4) for its employees.  A significant percent is dedicated to Health and Wellness.

Tucson Medical Center has the transformation goal of 75% value based contracting by 2020. The organization with its physician partnerships strongly supports the triple aim.

Goal will be measured yearly.  Metrics include number of programs and percent of contracting. Progress to the goal will be displayed.
