NORTHWEST HEALTH PLAN, in partnership with the Community Quality Alliance (CQA) network, is a provider-driven collaboration with employers that hosts a comprehensive network of physicians and advanced practice providers, hospitals, urgent care and other ancillary providers.
The goal of NORTHWEST HEALTH PLAN and Community Quality Alliance is to partner with employers to deliver high-value health care services by working together to improve outcomes and control medical costs. With employer and provider alignment on these goals and initiatives, we are able to provide better, more coordinated care to our community. CQA has been working on these goals with payors since 2016 and has seen continued success in advancing the quality, coordination, and efficiency of care delivery — while lowering the total cost of medical care in Northwest Arkansas.
Using real time data analytics, employers will experience more collaboration in managing appropriate utilization of health care resources, and providers are held accountable for performance in a new way. Northwest Health Plan is designed to be flexible and nimble to more effectively manage the changing cost of healthcare and key measures of quality care. We believe quality healthcare in Northwest Arkansas should be easily accessible as well as innovative.
CQA is only rewarded if we are successful at improving quality and lowering costs. The foundation of the Northwest Health Plan is a partnership dedicated to working and succeeding together.
