Inspira Health Partners is a Physician Hospital Organization (PHO)
PHOs are groups of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers who come together voluntarily to provide coordinated, high-quality care. The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients, especially those who are chronically ill, get the right care at the right time—all while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors. When a PHO succeeds in both delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely, its members share in the savings it achieves through insurance companies.
Inspira Health Partners was established to provide hospitals and health systems, such as the Inspira Health and its community of physicians, with a vehicle that drives strong physician leadership. Through this leadership, providers can work together in a collaborative manner to achieve common goals that include promoting the provision of higher quality, more coordinated and efficient care for individuals, improved health for populations and lower per capita expenditure growth. This is achieved while responding to and exploring opportunities created by the changing health care delivery and payment environment.
