Reasons Health Plans Should Partner with Orlando Health Network

The Orlando Health Network has worked vigorously to grow its care teams and build the necessary technological infrastructure needed to best manage the care for the patients and families it serves. These efforts have been enhanced through strong partnerships with more than 4,200 community and employed providers who participate in the system’s Orlando Health Network—an integrated network of healthcare providers who share mutual aspirations of achieving the Triple Aim.


Since launching the Orlando Health Network, the health system and its physician partners have collectively saved their patients and their insurance plans more than $90 million in healthcare spending. Moreover, the insurance companies partnered with Orlando Health have shown the health system to be of meaningfully higher quality and produce better patient satisfaction outcomes as compared to local, regional, and national peer groups.


One testament to Orlando Health’s quality performance is the annually produced, and publicly available, Medicare Compare report which features hospital star ratings based on how well each hospital performed compared to all other hospitals in the U.S. In the most current edition of the report, Orlando Health was listed as the sole awardee in the Central Florida marketplace with four or more stars, meaning the Orlando Health Network hospitals performed significantly better on the selected quality measures than all others locally.


Orlando Health Network is now the largest and most well-established provider network locally and, with its growth and track record it has compiled since 2013, now is among the ranks of the largest and highest performing networks nationwide.
