Little Rock’s healthcare community continues to be led by formidable ventures between the two leading health systems in the market, Baptist Health and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. The two systems have partnered to bring new radiation therapy services to the market, and have also teamed with Arkansas Children’s Hospital to develop a new proton therapy center. CHI St. Vincent’s Arkansas Health Network, the market’s largest clinically integrated network, accepts risk through an accountable care organization and continues to show strong results in the Medicare Shared Savings Program. Along with Arkansas Children’s Care Network, AHN entered direct contracts with five self-insured employers in Little Rock in hopes of improving quality and reducing healthcare costs for workers. While Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield leads the market in total enrollment by a significant margin, Centene’s acquisition of QualChoice and merger with national-MCO WellCare makes it a bigger player in the market. Expect to see an increase in telehealth and digital health services, as providers attempt to keep pace with patient services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
