Regional Presence and Collaboration
With an eye on reducing costs while achieving higher quality of care for patients, MH has partnered with BJC HealthCare of St. Louis, CoxHealth of Springfield, MO and Saint Luke’s Health System of Kansas City, MO to create the BJC Collaborative, LLC.
The four systems that are part of this new Collaborative are leaders in their regions and have entered into this new relationship with a commitment to doing what is best for their patients. The Collaborative is buoyed by the tenets of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that encourage partnerships and innovation. Each partner is well positioned to work together to achieve economies of scale, learn from each other and share best practices that will ultimately lead to better patient outcomes, improve healthcare access and reduce costs.
The organizations in The BJC Collaborative share common values and a commitment to being national leaders for excellence in patient care. In a national healthcare publication, one industry analyst referred to The BJC Collaborative as “brilliant” in that it allows the partners to gain the benefits of working together as a system to share and implement ideas without giving up the local control or governance. The BJC Collaborative will bring sustainable advantages to the patients and families served.
