UW Medicine, Seattle, Wash., has formed an accountable care network with other healthcare organizations in Puget Sound and has entered into an agreement to offer healthcare services to certain employees of Boeing beginning in January, 2015.

The UW Medicine Accountable Care Network will focus on keeping people healthy and out of the hospital by employing evidence-based preventive measures to identify and treat underlying health problems early before they become chronic conditions. "Our network is well positioned to provide seamless, integrated, high quality care for patients," said Johnese Spisso, UW Medicine chief health system officer, in a prepared statement. “Our medical home model also helps us to efficiently and effectively manage patients who have chronic medical conditions.”

Boeing has selected the UW Medicine Accountable Care Network for its Preferred Partnership option, which is available in the Puget Sound area. Eligible employees can stay in their current plan or they can select the new option, which allows them to choose one of two networks for their care: either the UW Medicine Accountable Care Network or the Providence-Swedish Health Alliance network.
