Collaboration to Share Info

Today, life sciences organizations are managing in an environment with new responsibilities, questions, and critical choices. To deal with these issues, the Premier Healthcare Alliance has just launched the Healthcare Innovators Collaborative to enable the sharing of knowledge from health systems that are implementing ACOs. Premier’s research on care coordination, new payment models, resource utilization, and more will be available.

Several organizations have already joined the collaborative including ARUP Laboratories Inc., Baxter, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Eli Lilly, Integrated Healing Technologies LLC, Johnson & Johnson Health Care Systems Inc., and Ethicon Inc. Charter level enrollment is limited and is currently open for 14 more organizations to join by March 31, 2013.

The group will be provided the latest news on healthcare reform topics, issues, and legislation. Charter members will have access to insights gained through Premier’s PACT™, QUEST® and Bundled Payment Hospital and Health System Performance improvement collaboratives.

Detailed data will be provided on:

  • Care delivery and integration changes
  • New payment models
  • Utilization
  • Engagement and cost measurements
  • Patient-centered medical homes
  • Drug and device management
  • Data warehousing
  • High-value care networks


The Collaborative is led by a panel of experts including representatives from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and the Mark Dixon Group LLC as well as Premier’s executive leadership.

This type of collaboration and innovation can help aid the sharing of best practices to identify better ways to support health systems and the communities they serve,” said Wes Champion, Senior VP of Premier Performance Partners.

To join the current charter members, email or call Alven Weil at (704) 816-5797.
