Orlando Health Network launched innovative care models in 2023

Saved more than $165 million in healthcare costs since inception

Orlando, FL (January 2, 2024) Orlando Health Network launched various innovative health care models in 2023 to enhance the quality of patient care. Since its inception in 2013, the network has generated more than $165 million in savings to patients, payers, employers and taxpayers, according to the Clinically Integrated Network Value Report 2023.

The recently released 2023 report details how the network, part of the Orlando Health hospital system, launched multiple initiatives during 2023 to ensure that the nearly 300,000 patients it serves in Central and West Florida receive timely, efficient, and effective medical care from more than 6,600 multispecialty providers.

"Our 2023 Clinically Integrated Network Value Report showcases our myriad innovative care models, clinical and quality programs, and strong performance across value-based  arrangements in the past year,” said Erik Walker, MD, board chairman, Orlando Health Network. “Now serving nearly 300,000 patients, Orlando Health Network achieved notable accomplishments for the tenth year in a row through the thoughtful collaboration with our dedicated providers and health system partners. On behalf of our network, I am once again humbled to share these efforts and their accompanying achievements.”

Initiatives launched by the network in 2023 include the Orlando Health Support Team for Aftercare and Resources Outpatient Centers, which are designed to effectively manage the post-hospitalization and advanced pharmacy needs of patients.

The network also developed customized disease and procedure-specific care pathways for chronic care management and bundled payment programs.

Orlando Health Network refined the post-acute care networks to ensure the highest performing skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies were aligned in meeting several new performance standards and practice protocols.

It expanded direct-to-employer models and alignment with retail-based partners to meet the evolving trends in patient and payer consumerism and formed a provider-led Network Performance Committee to advise on all network-related quality, operational and financial improvement opportunities.
