CareSource and Radiant Alliance ink new deal

Dayton, Ohio, June 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareSource, a nationally recognized nonprofit health plan, today announced a definitive agreement with Radiant Alliance, a group of highly respected, Ohio-based nonprofits to achieve groundbreaking new capabilities for the organizations to further their community-based missions. Metta Healthcare (the parent company of Ohio’s Hospice and Pure Healthcare) and United Church Homes have formed a partnership and will become a part of a new nonprofit entity, named Radiant Alliance. Upon regulatory approval, Radiant Alliance will become an affiliate of CareSource.

Working with and through Radiant Alliance, a strategic partnership of well-established nonprofit leaders in the supportive care and housing sectors, will allow CareSource to unlock unique solutions for serving a growing number of aging Americans and others with complex health needs. Radiant Alliance will serve as an innovative platform like no other in the industry, allowing CareSource to build its best-in-class strategic capabilities as it expands nationally.

“For years, the industry has talked about the incredible benefits of bringing together the critical capabilities of housing, provider and payer to drive better life outcomes for members,” said Erhardt Preitauer, president & CEO of CareSource. “We are the first to actually do it.”

The organizations already launched several innovative pilots, which are beginning to show significant value, especially for those with complex needs. Together, the organizations will crystalize around the core principle that the place a person lives should be a deliberate and integrated component of their overall plan of care, creating new opportunities to build and deploy integrated value-based care arrangements for high-acuity populations.

“In part because of the disruption caused by the pandemic, health care is undergoing transformational change,” said Kent Anderson, CEO of Ohio’s Hospice. “Creating a partnership with CareSource enhances our ability as a health care provider to serve more patients and more communities while ensuring a positive economic impact of the communities we are privileged to serve. This partnership allows us to remain true to the origin of our mission during these transformative times, while ensuring our mission remains relevant to the communities we serve and the other health care providers we work with to serve the community.” 

“Through this innovative relationship, we envision a future where older adults can age in place with the support and resources they need,” said Rev. Dr. Kenneth Daniel, president and CEO of United Church Homes. “This collaboration will enable us to make a significant impact in helping more people age abundantly, the United Church Homes core mission. Together, we are committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care that empowers older adults to live fulfilling lives wherever they call home.”
