Virtua to Join Healthcare Transformation Consortium
Virtua announced today that it will join the Healthcare Transformation Consortium (HTC), a collaborative of New Jersey health systems with self-funded employee health plans. Collectively, the seven organizations will share information and expertise to create strategies for improving access to quality, affordable care for covered employees and their families.
Formed in February 2018, HTC includes founding members Atlantic Health System, CentraState Healthcare System, Holy Name Medical Center, Hunterdon Healthcare, St Joseph’s Health, and Saint Peter’s Healthcare System. Aetna will serve as HTC’s third-party administrator of health benefits beginning January 1, 2019.
“As like-minded organizations committed to providing our employees with top-quality care that is accessible and affordable, HTC will establish best practices that, collectively, will elevate the healthcare model in New Jersey. Virtua is proud to represent South Jersey in this outstanding group,” says Virtua President and CEO Dennis W. Pullin, FACHE.
“Virtua’s participation in HTC will benefit all parties involved. By sharing ideas, tactics, successes, and challenges, we can learn from one another, build better systems, and solidify New Jersey’s reputation as a hub for excellence in medicine,” says Tarun Kapoor, MD, president of Virtua Physician Partners™.
