Who We Are
Princeton HealthCare Partners (PHCP) is a non-profit limited liability corporation whose sole equity owner is Princeton Health Holding Company, Inc. Princeton HealthCare Partners's purpose is to serve as an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). PHCP has as its Members, Princeton Health, a subsidiary of Princeton Health Holding, Inc., Princeton HealthCare Affiliated Physicians, PC (d.b.a., Princeton Medicine Physicians), and physician practices in the community served by PHCP.
The goals of the organization are to enhance the quality of health care and to reduce the historically steady increase of health care costs by acting as a facilitator and provider of the foundation needed to assist its participating members to transition from fee for service model to a model focused on population health.
PHCP operates under the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) through an agreement with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Currently Princeton HealthCare Partners is a Medicare ACO with more than 90 primary care physicians and over 7,800 Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries.
What We Do
Princeton HealthCare Partners's primary focus is built on the Triple Aim:
- Improve the patient experience
- Improve the health of our patient population
- Reduce the cost of care for services delivered to our population
Goals are achieved by dedication to innovative approaches to improving the quality of care provided and by ensuring enhanced coordination of the care being rendered to our members.
PHCP defines care coordination as the deliberate, evidence-based approach to a transition plan jointly created with the patient/family and team of healthcare providers, and linked to community partners and resources. Care coordination is implemented through physician led teams, and enhanced with the interconnectivity provided by our Princeton HealthConnect, our patient portal.
PHCP's care coordination program will engage patients, families and caregivers in facilitating beneficiary movement through the continuum of care. The process establishes proper patient length of stay and reduces readmissions while ensuring the safe progression of care. This approach provides a patient-centered care delivery model that will be well-coordinated, accessible treatment, alternative options, and an emphasis on self-management skills for all beneficiaries. The primary care practices remain the center of care coordination for all assigned patients. Transition coordination of patients to an acute setting, or from an acute setting to a medical home in the primary care setting, is accomplished through use of Princeton HealthConnect®.
