OUR MISSION STATEMENT
“Improving Health in Kentucky”
The purpose of the Kentucky Health Collaborative is to be a state-wide collaborative of leading healthcare providers and systems that serves as a model for quality, safety, access, coordination, effectiveness, efficiency of care and the advancement of benchmark clinical services, education, and research through innovative collaborative initiatives.
We will be the pre-eminent and preferred collaborative of providers, preparing for transformation of healthcare across the Commonwealth, and advocating for change when necessary, resulting in the improvement of health of Kentuckians, and the successful transition of provider participants in a continually evolving national healthcare system.
Kentucky Health Collaboratives’ purpose is to be a state-wide collaboration of Leading Healthcare Providers and systems. We serve as a model for quality, safety, access, coordination, effectiveness, and efficiency of care. We want to be the advancement of benchmark clinical services, education, and research through innovative initiatives.
The organization is governed by an Executive Committee inclusive of the 10-member CEOs, each with equal standing.
Designated functional teams lead efforts to execute mission-related activities. These teams are populated by key constituents including clinical, operational and financial personnel. In its efforts to pursue these initiatives, the KHC is not an Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) nor a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO), but rather an emerging new organizational structure, referred to as a Strategic Regional Healthcare Organization (SRHO), aimed at producing many of the same benefits while addressing local and regional healthcare needs without financial or organizational consolidation.
