Reaching the Summit:
A Vision of the Future

As we reflect on our past year’s progress, it’s important to consider our vision for the future. Where, ultimately, does this expedition lead? For the MaineHealth ACO, it leads to the summit of high-value care, a place with a sweeping view of a promising health care future. From the summit of high-value care, we will see satisfied providers who have the time and resources to deliver their best care to patients. We will see health systems that are effective and efficient, rewarded for providing patients the right care, at the right time, at the right place. We will see health plans that are innovative partners. We will see communities that are the healthiest in America. And, most important, we will see patients who are living their longest and best lives, their needs always put first by providers, practices, health plans and health systems.
“Reaching the summit requires an understanding of the conditions your team will be facing, planning for those conditions, and executing on that plan. The payoff is not only the view, but the satisfaction of having gotten there with folks you can count on,” says Michael Albaum, MD, the Chair of the ACO’s Board of Directors and Chief Medical Officer of Southern Maine Health Care. “At the MaineHealth ACO, we bring together teams composed of providers in a wide variety of practice settings as well as ACO staff. What joins us is a common goal of providing the communities we serve with high quality, high value healthcare. The higher we climb towards that goal, the better the view gets.”
We are a community of individuals who are propelling each other to the summit of high-value care. Our community includes members of the Board of Directors, committees and the ACO team who support providers, hospitals and health plans with data, information and resources. We thank you all for your dedication to building value for patients.
