About Orthopaedic Focus
Summa Health System in Akron is in the midst of transforming itself into an Accountable Care Organization (ACO), with the goal of providing better value and more innovative care to specific populations in the communities it serves. An ACO holds a provider accountable for the quality of care and cost of care, and this model will replace the traditional fee-for-service. How specialists fit into this future of healthcare remains to be seen.
Summa Health System’s department of orthopaedics is staying of the forefront of developments – both in orthopaedics and in the overall landscape of healthcare. We don’t know what the future will bring, but we know we will be ready for that future. I invite you to read this publication to learn more about the exciting work we’re doing in finding the best possible treatment courses for our patients.
