Morris View Healthcare Center is proud to be welcomed as a member of the ACO

Morris View Healthcare Center is proud to be welcomed as a member of the Atlantic Accountable Care Organization (ACO) high performing network together with only a select few of the highest quality subacute and skilled nursing facilities who join the ranks each quarter from across New Jersey.

“We are incredibly thrilled to have been accepted in the Atlantic ACO. It is an honor, a privilege, and a responsibility that we take very seriously”, says Kathy Goldberg, Director of Admissions at Morris View Healthcare Center.

Atlantic ACO, one of the largest ACOs in the nations, is affiliated with Atlantic Health System, one of the leading non-profit health care systems in the state. Their commitment to their patients is to delivery the highest quality care at the right time, at the right place, and at the right cost. Atlantic Health System hospitals include Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center, Clinton Medical Center and Hackettstown Medical Center.

The ACO adopts a “total cost of care” model, as opposed to the “bundled payment” model. Patients benefit from coordinated care across both physician offices and hospitals, improved communication between physicians and other health care services, improved health outcomes and fewer hospital visits.

As do all ACO members, Morris View Healthcare Center meets their rigorous standards of excellence including the “Safe Discharge” requirement, which ensures that the facility takes all necessary measures to reduce patient rehospitalization and ensures ongoing communication with the hospital to keep track of patient progress.

Morris View Healthcare Center, a member of Allaire Health Services, was awarded 5 stars by Medicare and Medicaid Services, making it one of the highest rated nursing homes in Morris County. The facility is renowned for its signature warmth, dedication and community involvement.

Morris View boasts a dedicated Subacute Rehab Wing, featuring only private rooms for optimal comfort, where the subacute patient is treated by expert therapists who strive to facilitate quick recovery through daily physical, occupational and speech therapy. In line with the high standards of the Atlantic ACO, each resident benefits from comprehensive discharge planning and extensive post discharge follow-up.

Morris View Healthcare Center considers reducing unnecessary hospitalization of their residents a top priority, and they have achieved the lowest hospital readmission rate in the area at 8.6 percent! To keep rehospitalizations to a minimum, they have partnered with TeleHealth Solution to give patients access to experienced, board certified doctors via telemedicine on evenings and throughout the weekend.

Morris View Healthcare Center is confident their participation in the Atlantic ACO network of high performing facilities will provide them with the opportunity to help rehabilitate even more patients and enable them to regain their independence so they can return home quickly.
