Working together to improve the health care system.
The Better Health Partnership drives high-quality care, and that drives better health.
We are transforming health care systems to improve the health of individuals and our community.
We support value-based payment models to accelerate better care and lower costs.
A Note to our Members
February 15, 2017
For the first time in our 10-year history, we are asking all attendees of our biannual Quality Improvement Learning Summits to pay a $25 fee, starting with April 7 Summit -- our 20th – to help offset rising costs, such as venue, keynote speaker travel, and food.
We launched these Summits in 2007 and sustained them with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Aligning Forces for Quality program, which was retired in 2015.
The one-day meetings are an integral part of our collaborative strategy and success. They bring providers and others together to focus on quality improvement and learn from and with each other, to the benefit of the community. Summits speed dissemination of best practices across health system boundaries – best practices that were identified with the timely and trusted data that heath systems provide to make a difference in Northeast Ohio. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you in April.
Register for the Learning Collaborative.

Better Health Board Member Pens New York Times Op-Ed Piece
January 17, 2017
JB Silvers, PhD, a BHP board member and Professor of Health Care Finance and Professor of Banking and Finance at the Weatherhead School of Management of Case Western Reserve University, made his view known on a swift dismantling of the Affordable Care Act. "From my point of view as a former health insurance company chief executive, “total disaster” would also describe any Republican repeal-and-delay plan," JB wrote in an op-ed column published Jan. 17 in the New York Times.
