Rainbow Physician Extension Team Provides State-of-the-Art Clinical Programs for Children in the UH Rainbow Care Connection Network

UH Rainbow Care Connection is one of the first pediatric accountable care organizations (ACOs) in the country. UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital received a $12.7 million Health Care Innovation grant from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation for its Physician Extension Team (PET).* To effectuate this grant, UHACO created a Pediatric ACO called UH Rainbow Care Connection, to create a physician network that will help to manage the health of 200,000 children in northeast Ohio, one-third of whom are Medicaid enrollees. Through the Rainbow PET’s clinical programs and employees and the UH Rainbow Care Connection Network and sustainability efforts, our pediatric ACO creates meaningful relationships across patients, pediatric primary care providers, hospitals and managed care organizations to drive change. Our clinical programs include:
