Arizona Care Network (ACN) is the group of doctors and other healthcare providers who are in-network for the Connected Care AZ health insurance plan option. Our doctors and care facilities work together to improve the health of members and reduce costs by actively coordinating care for patients. We commit to:
Improve the health of our patients with quality care in the best care setting for their situation
Enhance the patient experience because consumers have many choices and we must earn their business
Manage the rising cost of care by working as a team, communicating effectively, and reducing costly duplication of services
Increase provider satisfaction because our doctors and other care givers need to be healthy themselves to deliver good healthcare
This is our Quadruple Aim and everything we do is focused on improving in each of these four areas.
Connected Care is available in Oregon, Arizona, New Mexico, and Northern California and provides quality healthcare to more than 38,000 employees and their enrolled dependents. This represents 32% of Intel’s U.S. employees and their families with 94% satisfaction.
Care Coordination Can Support Your Overall Health
If you or a dependent are managing a chronic or complex illness, ACN is here to help. Our Care Coordination team works closely with your doctors and you to help manage your condition with the goal to reduce the likelihood of hospitalization and help you achieve your best health.
Care coordination is useful for any patient but it can be especially helpful to those with chronic or complex health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, COPD, depression, cancer or even one-time issues that require surgery and/or hospitalization.
