Dr Joseph Gifford Discusses the Unique Boeing ACO Model


When Providence-Swedish Health Alliance signed with Boeing to create a unique employer-sponsored accountable care organization, figuring out the logistics of the model took some time, according to Joseph Gifford, MD, CEO of Providence-Swedish Health Alliance.

Joseph Gifford, MD, chief executive officer of the Providence-Swedish Health Alliance, explains that Boeing’s unique accountable care organization model took quite some time to figure out logistics, such as creating a contract that would work to give care to employees as well as building an infrastructure that would handle such a contract. However, he adds that it was all worth it.

“The arrangement with Boeing to take direct care of an employer’s employees is really different and it’s been hugely important for us,” Dr Gifford says. “[It’s] actually driving what we’re doing to transform the way we give care.”
