Delivering Value

It is my great pleasure to be presenting to you the new website for the Delaware Valley ACO (DVACO).  As President and CEO of DVACO, I am passionate about improving population health outcomes, the care experience for patients and providers, and healthcare that is economically sustainable for our country.

I came to DVACO to be able to do this work in my home community, with five outstanding health systems that are committed to community health improvement, a strong primary care focus, and a powerful size out of the gate. The DV in our name stands not only for our geography, but also our commitment to building regional care models that “Deliver Value” to all of our stakeholders.   This is a great moment in history where the business model of healthcare (i.e. how we get paid) can align with our founders’ century (plus) old missions of improving the health of the communities we serve.

I’ve learned from 15 years of doing this work in care transformation, that it’s impossible to over-communicate; thus DVACO is redoubling its efforts to connect with you at every opportunity, to explain our current and future activities and how you can become engaged. Our revamped website reflects this commitment to communication to our multiple constituents in the communities we serve through our Member Health Systems and their affiliated physicians, who are all listed throughout our website.

If you want to find out more about DVACO and/or you have specific questions, comments and concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. 2015 will continue to bring breakneck-speed changes in healthcare, particularly here in the Philadelphia region, and the team here at DVACO is excited to be right in the middle of it all!
