THR, physician group picked for Medicare program

Texas Health Resources, one of North Texas' largest hospital groups, and North Texas Specialty Physicians said today they were selected to participate in a new federal effort to treat Medicare patients using a collaborative system called an Accountable Care Organization. Arlington-based THR and the Fort Worth-based physicians' group are among 32 organizations nationwide that will operate under Medicare's Pioneer ACO Model, which aims to provide more coordinated care at lower cost. THR and NTSP said they already use a health information exchange that allows them to share patient records electronically. The only other Texas party in the Pioneer program is Seton Health Alliance in Austin.
