Programs & Services


We seek to provide better health and better care at a lower cost. This is the framework by which we measure network success.


At the heart of NEQCA’s efforts is the Quadruple Aim, a concept developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) to guide healthcare providers to deliver the best care for a population while managing limited health care resources and dollars.


Inherent to the Quadruple Aim approach is the concept of Treating the Future,SM where NEQCA physicians are working with their patients to prevent diseases and complications, effectively improving their health and quality of life into the future. NEQCA provides our physicians with the resources they need to successfully face the challenges of the future health care system.


NEQCA has positioned itself as a value-driven network, delivering high quality and lower cost care. The network has many years of experience managing medical expense (utilization and costs), identifying opportunities and solutions for optimizing efficiency of quality local care.

Professional Provider Satisfaction

NEQCA is committed to improving the work life balance of our physicians by reducing administrative burdens and developing new programs to address these challenges.
