About the Ohio Independent Collaborative

The benefits of the collaboration include higher efficiency of care, improved quality, more effective delivery, lower costs and increased savings. These are vital to patients who, when faced with increasing costs, find that receiving the appropriate healthcare they need can be intimidating.

Who We Are

Members of the Ohio Independent Collaborative collectively provide care for more than 900,000 patients, spanning from Canton to Cleveland to Sandusky and all the areas in between. The coalition brings together nearly 800 primary care providers and specialists, who collaborate on initiatives that will improve clinical quality, patient care and access to providers.

Advantages for Patients and Physicians

Through their participation in the Ohio Independent Collaborative, member physician groups will offer lower costs and more options, all while providing high quality care with the same hometown doctor patients have come to know and trust.

In addition to its large primary care base, the Ohio Independent Collaborative offers a broad range of specialties, from sports medicine to general and orthopedic surgery to psychiatry and much more.

A Group of Independent Practices

The goal of the member physicians is simple: take the best care of their patients, while doing so in an environment that allows them to adapt to and benefit from evolving healthcare regulations. The Ohio Independent Collaborative allows member groups to unlock the benefits of belonging to a larger group while preserving the advantages of providing independent, tailored care that each of their patient communities have come to enjoy.

In addition to providing patient care benefits, the Ohio Independent Collaborative offers an attractive alternative for other physician groups around the state trying to maintain their independence in today’s ever-changing healthcare industry.

The Ohio Independent Collaborative creates market visibility with insurance providers, health systems, patients and vendors, allowing members to develop strategic partnerships that, on their own, they would never be able to create. The collaborative is not only a viable business option for independent physicians, but an organization that recognizes entrepreneurial spirit and encourages the sharing of intellectual capital member physicians bring to the organization.
