"When Accountable Care intersects with Accountable Health, physicians and consumers collaboratively work together on the mutual goal of improving and sustaining optimal health and its associated clinical outcomes," said Rick Lee , President and CEO, Healthrageous. "Accountable Care can only succeed if consumers are engaged. In order to improve the quality of health care and reduce cost, consumers must take control of their health. This will only increase in importance as various provisions of the Accountable Care Act gain traction."
"Accountable Health is the 'soul' of Accountable Care," added Michael Parkinson , MD, MPH, FACPM, Past President, American College of Preventive Medicine and a member of Healthrageous' Scientific Advisory Board. "An informed, empowered and engaged consumer and patient, supported to become one's best self to achieve health, wellness and quality of life, is the essence of Accountable Health."
