Jefferson Physicians

JeffCare (Our PHO)


JeffCare is Jefferson’s vehicle for collaboration with and alignment between independent physician practices, Jefferson’s employed physician practices and Jefferson’s hospitals. 

The transition from fee-for-service to value-based health care is well underway. We recognize that every practice is at a different stage of restructuring to meet this challenge.  To accommodate your specific requirements, we offer JeffCare Alliance and JeffCare PHO as two flexible options to support your practice’s health care delivery organization, measurement and reimbursement.

JeffCare Alliance

JeffCare Alliance is Jefferson’s Clinically Integrated Network, our vehicle coordinating care across affiliated providers including independent and employed primary care physicians, specialist, hospitals and ambulatory sites. The Alliance’s mission is to achieve efficiencies in the delivery of care, to implement evidence-based clinical protocols to enhance patient outcomes and to partner with payers to develop contracts that drive definable clinical improvement and add value to patients and participating physicians.

Opportunities for Collaboration

JeffCare Alliance extends our mission through close collaboration with the Delaware Valley Accountable Care Organization (DVACO), an organization founded by Jefferson Health and co-owned by its high-quality partners Main Line Health System. Physicians joining JeffCare Alliance have the opportunity to benefit from resources and contracts co-developed by Jefferson and deployed through DVACO.   

JeffCare Alliance Member Benefits consist of the following:

  • Shared savings under value-based contracts
  • Care coordination support
  • Jefferson branding opportunities

JeffCare Alliance members are expected to meet Conditions of Participation and work with JeffCare to improve the quality and efficiency of health care services provided to the populations that JeffCare serves.
