Partnering with patients and providers to improve child health

As a leader in pediatric care and child health, Akron Children’s Hospital recognizes that inequities still exist for our most vulnerable patients and a different model of care is necessary to deliver on our mission of improving the health of children.

To address this need, we have created the Akron Children’s Health Collaborative (ACHC), a provider-led, pediatric accountable care organization (ACO) designed to improve child health by empowering health care providers, and engaging with our patients and communities.

The Akron Children’s Health Collaborative is a partnership between pediatric health care providers who work together to offer high quality care at a lower cost by contracting directly with Medicaid managed care organizations and commercial payors.

We have the power to be truly transformational in addressing all aspects of child health and keeping kids healthy through:

  • Care management to help coordinate services and connect families to community resources.
  • Behavioral health services to support the mental health and well-being of children.
  • Population health initiatives to address barriers to care with an emphasis on well child care and health screenings, management of chronic health conditions, and improved access to care.
  • Quality improvement through the continuous monitoring of the care we provide as it compares to national benchmarks.
