Abstract

Rising health care costs coupled with an inability to determine what constitutes value in the delivery of health care services lead a group of Cincinnati health care purchasers to seek answers and solutions. The formation of a collaborative effort that includes both purchasers and providers is producing profound changes in the Cincinnati health care market. After one year in operation, data show a significant overall decrease in length of stay, a return to single-digit inflation, and intriguing changes in provider practice patterns.
