Driving Savings and Quality with Smarter NetworksSM

We develop custom provider networks using a robust pool of 32,000 doctors and health care providers across the Midwest. Through creative, data-driven approaches, these custom provider networks drive real savings that others can’t — or won’t. Our Smarter Networks incentivize higher-quality care by rewarding value over volume. In addition to Smarter Networks, here are a few key things we offer self-funded employers:

How to Self-Fund Smart

New to self-funding or The Alliance? Here's how we self-fund smart.


We empower employers with data-driven insights that help them steer employees to High-Value Health Care. Using our Smarter HealthSM analysis, employers have fast visibility into where their health care dollars are being spent — and how to save money without compromising quality of care.


Our QualityPath guarantee offers a bundled price for several tests and procedures, which significantly reduces the out-of-pocket expenses for employees and their families. It also includes built-in patient navigation, a warranty on select surgeries, and less paperwork.

Advanced Primary Care

Advanced Primary Care focuses on quality of care and outcomes as opposed to patient volume. This means physicians are able to dedicate more time to each patient, ensure chronic conditions are being managed, and better coordinate specialist care.

Health Policy

We create impact by helping employers secure High-Value Health Care — but also by advocating for improved health policy at both the state and federal level. We help legislators make well-informed decisions about health care topics that matter to the employers in their communities.

Networking and Learning Opportunities

We provide resources and hold educational events to help employers stay current on local and national health care issues. We also host networking opportunities for our employers to share best practices.
