Commonwealth Care Alliance this week announced its new affiliation with Cooley Dickinson Physician Hospital Organization (CDPHO) to contract with CCA’s Senior Care Options (SCO) program. The partnership aims to treat eligible patient populations with the most complex healthcare needs.
“We are excited this partnership is underway with Cooley Dickinson Physician Hospital Organization,” said Christopher D. Palmieri, President and CEO of CCA. “We share a common goal to provide the community with better access to integrated care, and this affiliation allows us to further extend our reach and provide an even higher standard of care to our members.”
Through this new affiliation, CDPHO will provide CCA’s SCO members with access to the organization’s physicians and services.
“By participating in this affiliation with CCA, Cooley Dickinson Physician Hospital Organization has committed to work in a more collaborative way to lower the cost and improve the overall care to its members in the Northampton area. We’re pleased to be participating in an innovative arrangement that recognizes the focus on high-quality, cost effective care. Coordination of care between our physicians and other affiliates has proven to result in better outcomes for the community, and we look forward to participating with CCA for our ongoing efforts,” said Norm Stachelek, President and Executive Director, Cooley Dickinson Physician Hospital Organization.
CCA cares for some of the Commonwealth’s most vulnerable populations, those eligible for both Medicare and MassHealth, or for MassHealth Standard only. CCA’s SCO (HMO SNP) program provides and coordinates all services covered under Medicare and MassHealth for individuals 65 and older, in addition to other benefits deemed necessary by each member’s primary care team. With Senior Care Options, each member is assigned a dedicated team of healthcare practitioners chosen to meet his or her individual needs, all working collaboratively to provide ongoing health management, early intervention, and urgent care.
