Alliance will develop and implement an improved integrated health care delivery system in our service area that will replace the fragmented one currently in place. Through new partnerships and collaboration among hospitals, physicians, long term and home care programs, social service agencies and community organizations, Alliance for Better Health will improve the quality of care delivered to Medicaid and uninsured individuals. Alliance will also ensure that a patient’s care is tailored to his/her individual needs, both medically and socially, and that the right care is delivered at the right time and in the right place. A greater involvement of case managers and health care navigators will ensure that high-need individuals receive coordinated care at an earlier stage, resulting in healthier individuals and lower health care costs.
Over a five year period, Alliance will be focused on eleven specific projects in order to achieve these main goals:
- Improve quality of patient care
- Improve the health and wellness of our communities
- Reduce health care costs
- Reduce unnecessary hospital and emergency department use by 25%
