USMD Physician Services (USMD) and UnitedHealthcare have launched an accountable care program to improve people’s health and their satisfaction with their health care experience.

The new accountable care program will dedicate more resources to care coordination and make it easier to share important health information. USMD member hospitals, clinics and physicians will share in the resulting savings generated through providing care under a value-based, patient-centric care model focused on keeping people healthy.

All Dallas/Fort Worth-area residents enrolled in UnitedHealthcare’s employer-sponsored health plans are eligible to benefit from this collaboration. More than 19,000 UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored plan participants access USMD’s services each year.

USMD, an affiliate of USMD Holdings, Inc., is based in Irving and serves the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex with more than 250 physicians and associate practitioners, and provides health care services to patients in more than 20 different specialties at its two hospitals, four cancer treatment centers and nearly 50 physician clinics, many of which are multispecialty.
