A Like-Minded Community for those Dedicated to Patient Care in the MetroWest Area
For those physicians who believe that their independence and autonomy are crucial to their ability to provide high-end patient care, the MetroWest Healthcare Alliance, Inc. offers a robust network that lets doctors focus on the quadruple AIM: Better Health; Better Patient Care; Lower Costs; Improved Professional Provider Satisfaction.
The Alliance is entirely owned by physician members and governed by an elected 10-seat board of directors, oriented toward the well-being of the community and recognizing the importance of each individual physician. This assures that the proper resources are in place for them to succeed financially and in terms of patient health.
Our Hospital Partner is the MetroWest Medical Center , which is comprised of the Framingham Union Hospital and Leonard Morse Hospital. These facilities contain:
- 299 Beds
- 136 Medical/Surgical Units
- 24 Intensive Care Units
- 12 Coronary Care Units
- 21 Pediatric Services
- 28 Obstetrics Services
- 64 Psychiatric Services
- 14 Pediatric Psychiatry Services
Other services include Emergency; Hospice; Primary Stroke; Cardiac Catheterization; and Rehabilitation.
In 2011, the MetroWest Healthcare Alliance joined the New England Quality Care Alliance (NEQCA ). This strong relationship enables us to make Tufts Medical Center (TMC) and Floating Hospital for Children our choice for tertiary and quaternary referrals. NEQCA has a network of 1,800 physicians affiliated with the organizations above in order to earn stronger rates of reimbursement through value-based contracts, form new programs, and expand our population health capabilities.
MetroWest Healthcare Alliance Inc., requires members to follow certain guidelines that we have established. All our physicians are required to have secure approved email. PCPs are expected to attend regular meetings, comply with NEQCA citizenship requirements, manage patient registries, and refer to specialists within the Alliance whenever possible. Specialists are also expected to attend quarterly meetings, see patients on a timely basis, and report their findings back to the PCP.
All physicians are expected to attend the Alliance Annual Meeting held in November.
