Today In The Upper Cumberland: Healthcare

Healthcare isn’t a new election issue, we talk about ACO’s with Dr. Brent Stanton

As we prepare to head to the polls for another election, one of the issues at the forefront for many is healthcare. There are however several groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who are trying to find a different way to make healthcare more affordable for those needing public assistance called Accountable Care Organizations or ACO’s. They work together voluntarily to give coordinated high-quality care to their Medicare patients. Dr. Brent Staton serves with the Cumberland Center for Healthcare Innovation in Cookeville.
