Become a part of our caring community and help us put health first

The Delaware Valley ACO (DVACO) is an accountable care organization that participates in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP), plus other commercial and Medicare Advantage value based programs. DVACO is a joint venture among three stakeholders: Humana (majority owner), Main Line Health System, and Jefferson Health System. Humana takes the lead in providing administrative support in various areas including HR.

DVACO’s MSSP participation accounts for the region’s largest Medicare ACO grouping, with more than 2,000 physicians and approximately 70,000 Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries. Additionally, DVACO currently holds performance-based contracts with private payers, enhancing DVACO’s total number of beneficiaries to approximately 150,000.

2025-2026 Administrative Fellowship

The DVACO Administrative Fellowship is a 1-year program designed for recent graduates of MHA, MBA, MPH, MS-POPH, or similar healthcare programs to build a foundation for a career in population health. The position emphasizes skills related to population health management, healthcare business planning, and leadership. Based on interests, the program may include rotations through various DVACO departments including Care Coordination, Practice Transformation, Data Analytics, Post-Acute Care and Clinical Quality, and the opportunity to become acquainted with each of our member hospitals.

In addition to these rotations, the Fellow can tailor their experience through various projects in quality oversight, data reporting, performance improvement, physician engagement, informatics, network development, and contract/payer relations. This design gives the Fellow the opportunity to build fundamental communication, analytic, and problem-solving skills as well as an understanding of the ACO environment and population health strategies. To complement on-the-job training, fellows are involved in Board and other administrative meetings. Fellows report directly to Joel Port, SVP, Business and Network Development.
