Collaborative Choice Healthcare launches in rural Colorado

The Community Care Alliance that serves rural Colorado announced it is partnering with Collaborative Health Systems, a population health management services organization, to expand value-based care in Colorado.

Through the agreement, a new joint venture will be created called Collaborative Choice Healthcare, which will include rural health practices, critical access hospitals, and rural health systems throughout typically under-served western Colorado and Moab, Utah, communities. The joint venture will work to improve quality outcomes and lower health care costs for Medicare beneficiaries living in rural Colorado communities by sharing health IT infrastructure, building population health management programs, and other care optimization strategies, according to a news release. Collaborative Choice Healthcare will operate in Colorado.

The Community Care Alliance was formed in 2015 by the Western Healthcare Alliance, a network of 31 rural hospitals and health care organizations in Western Colorado and Moab that aid their members with collaborative solutions and resources focused on rural health care.

Through the new joint venture, Collaborative Health Systems will provide Community Care Alliance with actionable data and analytics, strategic growth planning, care coordination, and market leadership to expand and strengthen local health care services.

“This partnership with CHS is in line with our goal of helping our provider partners thrive in value-based care arrangements that reward them for improving quality of care and health outcomes for our rural residents,” said Dave Ressler, Community Care Alliance’s board chair and CEO of Aspen Valley Hospital. “We undertook an in-depth evaluation process and believe CHS is the right organization to bring success by maintaining healthy populations throughout rural Colorado with better care at lower costs.”
