The Delta Health Alliance

Accountable Health Community


Thanks to a new grant from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, DHA has created the Delta Accountable Health Community to improve access to a broad range of health care services while lowering the cost for individuals in Bolivar, Coahoma, Holmes, Humphreys, Leflore, Sunflower and Washington Counties.

The goal is to reduce avoidable health care utilization, lower the cost of health care, and improve the health and quality of care for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries by using a broad range of healthcare and community partners to assist patients with accessing needed services.

While planning for the project is still underway, DHA has already recruited 14 clinical delivery sites and 9 community-based organizations that will serve as partners in providing patients with health-related social needs while using new technologies, improved awareness and use of community services and support, and a more robust evaluation of health-related social services to improve care.
