Payment reform is changing the healthcare industry, and new integrated care delivery models continue to gain momentum across the country. The transition from volume-based services to value-based performance is inevitable. We understand that taking on this scope of work is difficult, even for the most advanced systems.

Premier’s Population Health Management Collaborative (formerly known as PACT) helps our members meet the challenge of improving the health status and care experience for their patient populations. Hospitals and health systems participating in the Population Health Management Collaborative work to connect different elements affecting care delivery, like:

  • Patient-centered health homes that deliver primary care and coordinate with other providers
  • Aligned networks of specialists, ancillary providers and hospitals focused on outcomes
  • Explicit care integration and coordination mechanisms
  • Payor-provider partnerships identified under healthcare reform that facilitate and reward high-value healthcare
  • Population health information infrastructure to enable community-wide care coordination

The Population Health Management Collaborative connects members who want to build accountable care capabilities, whether they already function as accountable care organizations or whether they want to build the infrastructure to become an ACO. We do this by:

  • Speeding the process and lowering the risk of developing new accountable care delivery models
  • Building key accountable care components like health homes, bundled payment models, population data management and health IT
  • Working with policy makers to influence legislation and shape government initiatives
  • Sharing best practices and contracting models to lower costs, improve outcomes and increase patient satisfaction
  • Establishing standard performance metrics to manage population health, identify improvement opportunities and enhance market position with payors, employers and regulators
  • Positioning collaborative members as the national leaders in improving the value of our healthcare system
