7 Northeast Hospital Systems Form Clinical Quality Alliance

Twenty-five hospitals from seven Northeast health systems have formed AllSpire Health Partners, an alliance to address healthcare quality, best practices, population health management and medical research.

The consortium hopes to transform healthcare delivery by conforming to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's triple aim: improving patient experience, improving population health and creating affordable care.

To that end, the health systems will work through economies of scale to develop quality shared services at lower costs.

Participating health systems are:

• Atlantic Health System (Morristown, N.J.)
• Hackensack (N.J.) University Health Network
• Lancaster (Pa.) General Health
• Lehigh Valley Health Network (Allentown, Pa.)
• Meridian Health (Neptune, N.J.)
• Reading (Pa.) Health System
• WellSpan Health (York, Pa.)

The health systems serve upwards of 6 million people and have combined revenue of more than $10 billion, making AllSpire Health the largest healthcare consortium in the U.S., according to a news release.
