By Katherine Schneider, MD, DVACO president
Delaware Valley Accountable Care Organization (DVACO) is fortunate to have Mark Angelo, MD joining us as chief medical officer and his timing could not be better.
With the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) announcing challenging new models for its Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and deeper engagement with commercial payers in our future, Mark is taking the clinical reins of the organization at a pivotal point.
Fortunately, he comes well prepared for the tasks ahead. He joins DVACO from Cooper University Health Care where he served in many roles, including medical director for Population Health and as chief executive officer of the AllCare Health Alliance ACO. He will manage all activities of the DVACO clinical team including quality, care coordination, population health pharmacy, post-acute strategy, clinical integration and practice transformation.
