CHICAGO, Jan. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cleveland Clinic and Valence Health announced today that they will partner to support the Clinic's effort to become a clinically integrated network. This new network, the Quality Alliance, will bring together the Cleveland Clinic Hospitals, physicians, and more than 1,000 private practitioners in the community.
The Cleveland Clinic, through its Community Physician Partnership (CPP), recognized the need to pursue Clinical Integration as a contracting vehicle and quality of care strategy, creating substantial interdependence among its participating providers. After an extensive search for the right solution, CPP leadership selected Valence based on their unique ability to aggregate health care data from physicians, hospitals, and other providers. "We were looking for a partner who could provide the tools and support to meet our goals of improving quality and standardizing patient care," states Michael McMillan, Executive Director of Cleveland Clinic Market and Network Services.
