Meet Partners For Kids, the United States’ Largest Pediatric Accountable Care Organization

When policy makers and health care leaders talk about “value-based care,” the work exemplified by Partners For Kids is what they mean.

Partners For Kids, founded more than 25 years ago by Nationwide Children’s Hospital, helps ensure that more than 400,000 children covered by Ohio’s Medicaid managed care plans receive the care they need, when they need it.

Early, high-quality well care can help prevent later disease; coordinated care of chronic and complex conditions can reduce the number of stressful, expensive hospital visits now and in the future.

Partners For Kids has the ability to both improve overall health for an entire population and save the health care system money. Partners For Kids also has unique access to data for hundreds of thousands of children, allowing it to conduct population-level research to drive better outcomes.
