Is Your Doctor Providing the Quality Care You Need?
Arizona Care Network (ACN) is a group of doctors and care facilities that work together to improve healthcare and reduce costs by actively managing care for our patients.
Provide high-quality, coordinated care for patients
Meet specific care standards that are set based on proven protocols and measures designed to enhance care quality
Reward providers who improve population health by meeting those standards
Avoid unnecessary duplication of services
What Sets Us Apart
ACN is a joint venture of Dignity Health and Abrazo Health. These two healthcare systems came together to create ACN because they have a vision to:
Improve population health with high-quality care
Enhance the patient experience
Manage the rising cost of care
Improve provider satisfaction
We call this the “Quadruple Aim” and everything ACN does is measured against how well it supports one or more of these aims.
ACN’s Care Coordination team is another thing that differentiates us. The care coordination team is made up of healthcare professionals who become part of your healthcare team by assisting you with a full range of services to support your doctor’s recommendations. This leads to an improved overall healthcare experience at a more affordable cost. Eligible patients never receive a bill for care coordination services.
What Our Care Coordination Team Does
ACN’s Care Coordination team works with your doctor to connect you to the care you need to prevent health problems, treat new conditions, and guide you through transitions of care when moving from one healthcare setting to another. These transitions of care can carry a high risk because you are changing healthcare providers, may have new medications, and new instructions to follow.
The Care Coordination team is part of your healthcare team, giving you individual support from:
Offer support in managing and understanding your health conditions
Help during discharge and other transitions of care with medication education, care planning, and more
Help you find the right provider
Identify gaps in care
Find resources or resolve roadblocks
Call the ACN concierge at 602.406.7226 to speak with a navigator.
Identify things in your life that impact your health (called social determinants of health)
Connect you to the right community resources for transportation, healthy meals or other needs that may affect your health
Behavioral Health Coaches
Integrate your medical and psychosocial needs to help you better manage your overall health
Attend medical and behavioral health appointments with you (if you wish)

The real problem people have is doctors that cannot recommend other doctors for better health when they can,’t . Most doctors do not even know other doctors unless they are in their network. They cannot tell a patient who to go see if they need another opinion. Orthopedic doctors have no clue who is a good heart doctor. A heart doctor does not know what who to recommend for a cancer doctor. A cancer doctor has no clue who to recommend for eye doctor. All of them these days only know others in their group or line of doctoring. Every year Phoenix puts out the top 500 doctors in a whos who and leave out the 5000 doctors that are practicing medicine all over the city. If you need a second opinion they can’t give you one unless it is in their tiny group of associates. Sad day for healthcare.
