OMNIA Health Alliance Questions & Answers

What is the OMNIA Health Alliance?
The OMNIA Health Alliance is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between some of the top health care organizations across the state dedicated to accelerating the transformation of the state's health care system to one that rewards high quality health care. The current traditional, fee-for-service health care system generally treats patients after they become sick, and pays hospitals and doctors for the amount of services they provide to those patients. The result is higher costs and more health services, but not necessarily more effective care. The OMNIA Health Alliance is committed to developing innovative ways to keep individuals healthy and improving the quality of care individuals receive, enhancing individuals' health care experience, and lowering health care costs for individuals and businesses.

Who is included in the OMNIA Health Alliance?
The OMNIA Health Alliance includes the state's largest health insurer, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, the Atlantic Health System, Barnabas Health, Hackensack University Health Network, Hunterdon Healthcare, Inspira Health Network, Robert Wood Johnson Health System, and the Summit Medical Group.

What makes the OMNIA Health Alliance unique?
The unprecedented collaboration between top health care organizations in New Jersey with a shared vision to transform the health care system to one that is centered on providing more effective and efficient care and a better health care experience to consumers.

Instead of a health care system that only treats patients when they are sick, the OMNIA Health Alliance organizations will collaborate and innovate on ways to increase the scale of population health management across the state to help keep individuals healthy, improve their quality of life, and lower health care costs. The OMNIA Health Alliance is also dedicated to fundamentally transforming how they work with each other to finance and deliver more effective and efficient health care to New Jersey consumers.

Is the OMNIA Health Alliance an accountable care organization (ACO)?
No. The OMNIA Health Alliance is not an accountable care organization. The OMNIA Health Alliance is a much larger collaboration than a single ACO. This alliance represents a shared vision and commitment between Horizon BCBSNJ, a major multispecialty physician group, and several health systems to change how health care is financed and delivered in New Jersey. The result will be greater collaboration, innovation, and focus on population health management as well as more integrated, coordinated care that will lead to better patient outcomes, produce an enhanced health care experience for consumers, and lower the total cost of care.

Why is the OMNIA Health Alliance important for New Jersey's health care consumers?
Rising health care costs are unsustainable. The status quo is unsustainable. Consumers want a better health care system. The OMNIA Health Alliance is committed to transforming New Jersey's health care system for the better. It is a powerful collaboration of the top health care organizations in the state focused on helping consumers experience health care in a new, more effective and efficient way.

When this many health care leaders in New Jersey come together and agree on a shared vision, it creates great power for positive change. We're calling it the Power of YES.
