Accountable Health Networks (AHN) are a new kind of network, one in which your primary doctor (also called your primary care provider, or PCP) acts as your quarterback—the point person who leads your care team to manage your total care.
Coordination of care
Your team can share information to make sure they're all on the same page. This approach can help them see the bigger picture of your health and any gaps in your care.
All of your doctors have access to any test results requested by one of them. Removing redundancy can save you money.
Direct access to specialists
Every specialist in your AHN is already part of your team so referrals aren't needed.
Everyone in your family can choose a PCP
Each person has individual needs and can choose a PCP based on their special concerns.
Choosing a PCP
A PCP gets to know you to help you make the best decisions about your health. You can choose a PCP based on a specialty or even location, so that getting care is easier and more convenient for you.
Here are some of the types of providers you can choose as your PCP:
- Family practice
- General practice
- Internal medicine
