We are pleased and proud to share that a MedAxiom member and corporate partner have successfully collaborated on the launch of the first cardiology-specific accountable care organization. Cardiology Associates of North Mississippi and Magellan Health officially introduced Accountable Cardiac Care of Mississippi (ACCOM) on December 18th. Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi is also part of the collaboration. As was stated in the press announcement, “ACCOM was formed to contract with health plans, existing accountable care organizations, and other risk-bearing healthcare entities for the purpose of improving patient care, cost, and quality in Mississippi.”
