What is a healthcare consortium?

In: Other

Without knowing the direct context, a consortium is an affiliation/connection that’s not a complete merger but a close partnership of related organizations/companies. So a healthcare consortium could be a network of hospitals and affiliated medical groups, sharing a billing system and/or patient database. Or it could be something like how Amazon, JP Morgan, and Berkshire Hathaway are creating a combined private health insurance company to cover their employees.
