PacificSource Announces a New Partnership with Legacy Health and OHSU Health System

FamilyPacificSource is excited to announce that it is partnering with Legacy Health and OHSU Health System to introduce new health plan offerings to the commercial group market beginning January 2020. This collaboration adds to PacificSource’s existing strategic partnership with Legacy Health, and brings two of Portland’s largest hospital and healthcare delivery systems together in an innovative arrangement that will yield affordable health benefit solutions for Portland-area employers.  

Developed with market-leading healthcare partners: These new products, called Pathfinder, have been developed in collaboration with healthcare provider partners Legacy Health and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). Over the past few years, OHSU has significantly expanded its presence in the Portland area, and its affiliations now include OHSU Tuality Healthcare in Hillsboro and Adventist Health Portland. Adventist Health and OHSU Tuality Healthcare are also partners in this initiative, ensuring that the product’s provider network will be comprehensive and geographically well positioned to serve employers. Key independent providers in the greater Portland area will also be included in the network to meet our members’ needs. 

Right care, right setting, optimal cost: The design of the partnership and its products will aggressively manage costs for employers while improving the health of our members through collaborative population health management strategies. Benefit designs, together with reimbursement methodologies that emphasize value over volume, will encourage the right care, in the right setting, at the optimal cost.
 
Building on partnerships and collaboration: PacificSource will continue to market its existing Legacy Health and PPO products in Portland, as well as continue its many health improvement initiatives with Legacy. Legacy Health and OHSU are partners on numerous initiatives including the OHSU Knight-Legacy Health Cancer Collaborative. The PacificSource Pathfinder products will deepen that partnership, as a manifestation of the three organizations working together to improve quality, cost, and the patient experience on behalf of the region’s employers. 

More information will be available later this year. If you have questions, please contact our Sales team.
