Value-Based Healthcare Network for Self-Insured Employers Launches in Florida
St. Johns, FL, December 18, 2019 --( ValueH Association LLC, the parent company of Florida Association of ACOs (FLAACOs), proudly announced the official launch of its ValueH High Performing Network (ValueH Network). Through collaboration and partnerships with Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and other like-minded networks, the ValueH Network will deliver superior transformation of health care across the state of Florida for small to medium sized self-insured employers. Utilizing the relationships that FLAACOs has built with Florida’s ACOs since 2013, ValueH is well positioned to leverage the experience and best practices developed through the shared savings program, and is poised to deliver significant value and patient engagement to employers and their employees.

The ValueH Network is levering a value-based model of care that has been deployed by ACOs for better health outcomes, exceptional patient experience and lower costs. ValueH will partner with its high performing network of providers to bend the cost curve by rewarding them for keeping costs low and quality of care high.

CEO and Chairwoman for FLAACOs, Nicole Bradberry stated, “Florida ACOs are leading other states in adopting best practices and the sharing of ideas to achieve outstanding results. Florida has the highest concentration of independent Medicare Shared Savings ACOs in the country, which can be attributed to the success of the ACOs in the State in generating shared savings and outstanding quality results, but most importantly, to the idea that competing entities are able to share best practices through the formation of FLAACOs in 2013.”

It is this belief that is compelling her and other members of ValueH and FLAACOs to build a network formed by aggregating the ACOs in Florida as a foundation for small and medium sized employers to bend the cost curve.

Balford Francis, one of the officers of FLAACOs state, “One of the primary barriers to bending the cost curve for small to medium sized employers is the lack of a state-wide high performing network aligned around the same principles as the ACOs.” Mr. Francis believes that ValueH has all the right ingredients to solve the cost and quality puzzle.
