Midwest Health Collaborative Update

Premier Pulse     October 2017

Clinical teams from health systems participating in the Midwest Health Collaborative have been meeting regularly with the goal of identifying evidence-based best practices which can be shared across the systems. In addition, the collaborative is developing cost advantageous ‘big data’ tools to assist systems in risk stratification of their populations – with both Milliman and OptumInsight products.

The collaborative includes six of the largest health systems in Ohio: Premier Health, TriHealth, OhioHealth, ProMedica, Aultman, and Cleveland Clinic. The collaborative aspires to disrupt the Ohio health care market and compete in the shift from volume to volume plus value.

The collaborative has created a statewide network of more than 17,000 providers, including Premier Health Group’s (PHG) network of more than 6,000 employed and independent providers. This network can cover 90 percent of Ohio’s population.

By working together to identify best practices, the collaborative will be able to offer a ‘playbook’ for care management and population health.

We believe that this work will result in a highly performing statewide network of physician and advanced practice providers and hospitals. The collaborative is working to become a network whose guiding principle is a commitment to improve the health of the communities we serve through evidence-based population health strategies. We intend to offer patients a consistent experience across the system with best-in-class outcomes and efficiency.
