Advantages of the Pennsylvania Pediatric Health Network LLC (PPHN)

Why join the network? The PPHN helps primary and specialty care groups manage the rapid changes in health care.

Analytics to Improve Patient Care and Outcomes

The PPHN has access to the analytical resources of UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and member practices to:

  • Reduce care fragmentation.
  • Improve patient outcomes in the communities.
  • Build the foundation for integrated care across the continuum.

Our excellence in analytics lets us provide member groups with crucial value-adds, such as:

  • Population-based risk stratification.
  • Utilization management.
  • Real-time claims data.

Clinical Integration and Care Coordination

The PPHN helps streamline and improve the patient experience through the belief that the medical home is the center of effective care coordination.

As payment methods for care coordination evolve away from a per-member, per-month payment, network members are ready for this evolution.

Value-Based Contracting

Scale and scope are vital parts of value- and risk-based contracting.

The PPHN has both the population size and the primary and specialty care expertise crucial in addressing value-based contracting.
