High-Quality Care + Lower Cost = QualityPath®

QualityPath is a new way to buy health care.

The cost of surgeries and tests varies wildly – by hundreds, even thousands of dollars. With QualityPath, you and your employees benefit from:

  • For surgeries, a bundled price that covers most care. For tests, a standard price provides savings.
  • A warranty that protects you from the high cost of complications for surgeries. For tests, the warranty covers the need for repeating the same scan due to quality issues.
  • Requiring doctors, hospitals and clinics to take steps that lead to better results for patients.

Tests and Surgeries

Use QualityPath for these tests and surgeries.

TestsAvailable Jan. 1, 2017

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Computed tomography (CT)

also known as computerized axial tomography (CAT) scans


Total hip replacement

Knee replacement

Coronary artery bypass graft (heart bypass surgery)

The Alliance plans to expand QualityPath with more tests and surgeries as we search out more opportunities to identify high-quality care. Selected tests and surgeries must also offer the potential to negotiate savings based on guiding a higher volume of patients to QualityPath doctors, hospitals and clinics.

This is health care made simple.

90 day warranty high quality better patient experience
Doctors, hospitals and clinics pay for surgery complications or repeated tests due to quality issues, not the employer. A single price covers most elements of surgeries and tests. Doctors, hospitals and clinics meet quality measures and use practices that reduce unnecessary care. You have less paperwork. For surgeries, the patient experience manager offers personal assistance.

QualityPath is:

  • Inspiring and sustaining changes in the way you buy health care
  • Saving an average of $12,000 per surgery; savings for tests are projected at 20 percent below current costs (actual results will vary by usage).
  • Reducing out-of-pocket costs for employees and family members
  • Guiding employees and family members to high-quality care for surgeries and tests

Miniature Precision Components shares an employer's experience with QualityPath


Your employees need clear choices for taking control of their care.

Here's how it works:

  • The Alliance annually designates high-value doctors, hospitals and clinics based on their ability to meet national quality measures, adopt processes that improve care and agree to a lower price.
  • Your business or organization signs up to participate. QualityPath is part of your Alliance membership, so there’s no additional fee.
  • You promote the program to employees so they understand what they can gain from QualityPath and how to use it.
  • Employees get a warranty, lower out-of-pocket costs (sometimes nothing!) and less paperwork.
  • For surgeries, employees also get support from a patient experience manager who can make appointments, transfer medical records and serve as a liaison.
  • For tests, employees can notify The Alliance after they have a test appointment.

Getting started is simple. Download the implementation documents, and talk to your Member Services representative or contact 608.210.6653,

Better health care begins here.

The Alliance® is a cooperative of employers moving health care forward by controlling costs, improving quality, and engaging individuals in their health.
