Boston HealthNet

Boston Medical Center is a founder of Boston HealthNet, a network affiliation of the medical center, Boston University School of Medicine, and 12 community health centers. Established in 1995, Boston HealthNet is an integrated health care delivery system whose partners provide outreach, prevention, primary care and specialty care, and dental services at sites located throughout Boston and in nearby communities.

Physicians at HealthNet locations provide a wide range of comprehensive health care services to adults and children, with a focus on disease prevention and health education. When you receive primary care at HealthNet sites, you have access to both individualized and culturally-sensitive care in your neighborhood and highly trained specialists and cutting-edge technology at 正规的滚球平台.

Accountable Care Organization (ACO)

Boston Medical Center, Boston HealthNet community health centers, and the WellSense Health Plan are part of Boston Accountable Care Organization (BACO), which provides care to certain MassHealth patients.

Accountable care organizations (ACOs), of which BACO is one, are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together to give coordinated, high-quality care to their patients.

The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors. By helping your doctors and primary care providers to communicate more closely with your other health care providers, ACOs can deliver that meets your individual needs and preferences.

In addition to BACO, 正规的滚球平台HP has partnerships with three other provider organizations across Massachusetts to deliver health care services: Mercy Health Accountable Care, Southcoast Health Network, and Signature Healthcare Corporation.
