Our Commitment to Quality®

Healthcare is changing. And at Tenet, we have a plan to lead that charge.

How? By making safety, service and industry-leading clinical outcomes the cornerstones of our mission. By seeking to provide high-quality, high-value care backed by compassionate service. By giving our caregivers the tools, technologies and resources they need to deliver the best care possible. By always doing what’s right for our patients, our employees and our communities.

Our Commitment to Quality® honors the trust that our patients and communities place in our hospitals, outpatient centers, physician practices and other care facilities. It's at the core of everything we do and every decision we make.

Accountable Care Organizations

Tenet has been recognized as a national leader in care innovation through various programs including its Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).  Our ACOs are focused on:

• improving quality, efficiency and coordination of care;
• increasing collaboration and alignment among physicians and hospitals; and
• establishing innovative relationships with physicians, payers, employers and patients. 

We have a proven track record delivering on these objectives, both within our ACO networks and also through Conifer Health Solutions.  In fact, more than 80 percent of our hospitals are currently participating in ACOs, covering nearly 1 million patients.  In addition to participating in more than 85 CMS innovation programs, Tenet ACOs are contracted with the largest national payers, as well as multiple regional purchasers of healthcare.  

Our value-based arrangements are structured to deliver an improved, more comprehensive and cost-effective care experience.  We do this by deploying best practices across the company and rewarding physicians and hospitals for quality care improvements. We provide the clinical and operational infrastructure, as well as payer contracting best practices to help our ACOs be successful.

We are proud that our ACO operations are helping to improve the overall care experience for the patients and communities we serve.
