There are alliances coming to fruition in Florida that will widen benefits and care for people in the area. Florida Hospital Healthcare System and Health First are coming together to launch a health plan and new insurance products. FHHS provides employee benefits for Florida Hospital and Health First works to integrate health systems. The two organizations will start their first venture in January called Florida Hospital Care Advantage. This new pilot will bring about more local insurance options and plans to reduce costs. Both organizations will assist each other in the future changes to Medicare and Medicaid payments. The pilot will start in Volusia and Flagler counties, aiming to spread state wide with its success.

Another alliance that is forming is between Orlando Health and Walgreens. They aim to provide better care coordination for medical services using Walgreens’ clinics. The physicians at Orlando Health will be able to communicate with Walgreens’ clinics directly which will promote information sharing. There is also talk of integrating electronic health records for even more reliable delivery options.
