Advance Health Assessments

The Advanced Health Assessments (AHA) program is an initiative developed and funded by Priority Health with implementation in the Holland, MI market facilitated by Holland PHO.

The goal of the AHA program is to "more fully support the patient-physician relationship within the Primary Care medical home, while ensuring we meet CMS' expectations of Medicare Advantage plans..." This includes the expectation to "improve patient care through the identification of certain risk factors, personalized health advice, and referral to additional preventative services and lifestyle interventions."

Participating offices are provided with a RN who assists providers in completing a full and "accurate annual assessment of each member's health status."

Currently, Holland PHO is supporting three provider offices in the AHA program with the intention of expanding the program to include other Holland PHO-member offices in the future.
