Summa Health and its minority owner, Mercy Health, are part of a new “network of networks” called Advanced Health Select.
Summa and Mercy Health will invest $100 million over three years in what they said will be “the largest clinically integrated network in Ohio.”
The two health systems said Advanced Health will improve chronic care management and lower the total cost of care for patients and communities.
Summa’s NewHealth Collaborative and Mercy Health Select, both accountable care organizations, are the first provider networks to join Advanced Health Select.
“They will continue to provide the outstanding care within their local markets guided by their distinct mission and vision,” the health care providers said in a news release. “But now more than 2,800 providers in Ohio and Kentucky will all be linked in a single ‘network of networks.”
Advanced Health Select will use advanced data analytics and technology support, the health organizations said.
