Who we are
In May 2013, the Aultman Health Foundation leadership appointed a 20-physician steering committee from across the health system to develop a clinically integrated network (CIN) for Stark and surrounding counties. The steering committee developed a governance model and created the network named Integrated Health Collaborative. Integrated Health Collaborative has partnered with many of the local hospitals in the Independent Hospital Network:
- Alliance Community Hospital
- Aultman Hospital
- Aultman Orrville Hospital
- Joel Pomerene Hospital
- Union Hospital
Integrated Health Collaborative officially formed in December 2013 with the nomination of the Board of Directors.
As health care transforms from volume-based reimbursement to value-based care, Integrated Health Collaborative will engage physicians to lead the transformation to deliver high-quality, patient-centered, efficient care. Integrated Health Collaborative will lead the development of physician initiatives focused on population health management.
Integrated Health Collaborative seeks to accomplish three goals, known as the “Triple Aim.”
- Improve the patient care experience.
- Improve population health.
- Reduce the per capita cost of care.
