(Trenton, N.J.) -- Twenty-five hospitals in three states, including Pennsylvania, have agreed to research and share ideas about what works in a new health care alliance.
AllSpire Health Partners has announced its plans, saying the idea is designed in reaction to President Obama's health insurance overhaul. The group says it can improve care and lower costs.
The overhaul has been a key reason for major shifts in the health care business that has seen hospitals launch insurance services and insurers get into providing health care.
Among the hospital systems involved are three from the midstate -- Reading Health System in Reading, Lancaster General Health in Lancaster and Wellspan Health in York.
Others in the new alliance are Atlantic Health System, Hackensack University Health Network, Lehigh Valley Health Network and Meridian Health.
