March 9, 2017 § Leave a comment
Holding a DO from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Lamont Tyler serves as medical director of specialty physician services at the OSF St. Joseph Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, where he treats patients for a variety of ailments. In September 2016, Dr. Lamont Tyler’s hospital earned mention among Becker’s Hospital Review 100 Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) to Know 2016.
An annual listing that celebrates the efforts of Medicare and other commercial payer accountable care organizations, the ACOs to Know list offers recognition to those organizations that go above and beyond. It acknowledges health care organizations that take considerable measures to improve their quality of care, patient satisfaction, and care management. ACOs to Know are selected based on a number of factors including cost and quality performance, new commercial agreements, and participation in the Next Generation Model by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Furthermore, Becker’s Hospital Review does not accept payment for inclusion and presents organizations in alphabetical order, rather than constructing a detailed hierarchical ranking.
