Leading the way toward value-based care.

Alaska Health Alliance with Providence is working to improve health care for Alaskans.

Alaska Health Alliance with Providence

We are a physician-led network of providers focused on transforming care for our patients – collaborating to improve outcomes and quality metrics while addressing the rising costs of care.

Alaska Health Alliance with Providence formed in May 2021 as a clinically integrated network – a physician-led organization committed to improving patient care through value-based practices.

A Providence Partner

At Providence, we are committed to health for a better world. It’s in support of this Vision that we sponsor Alaska Health Alliance with Providence – a clinically integrated network led and governed by local physicians to serve the health care needs of our communities.

Alaska Health Alliance with Providence includes the state’s largest and highest ranked hospital – Providence Alaska Medical Center. Through PAMC, Alaska Health Alliance with Providence provides distinct advantages to the network’s providers, including collaboration on existing inpatient quality measures and demonstrated value to payers and community members familiar with the hospital.  

What is value-based care?

Value-based care serves as an alternative to traditional fee-for-service reimbursement models and is a response to both federal health care reform and the needs of employers to reduce what they spend on health care benefits. Value-based care programs are:

  • Based on quality rather than quantity.
  • Centered on patient outcomes and specific quality metrics.
  • Focused on reducing health care costs.
  • Quickly becoming the standard for delivering care.
