“Because a lot of the participants in the ACO are smaller individual physician offices, physical therapy treatment centers, or other ancillary providers, few of them have Care Coordinators, nor do they have the resources, need, or desire to have a full-time person sitting in their office,” Yadon said. “We allow them to share a Care Coordinator without having to commit to a full-time employee.”
