Improved administrative efficiencies since launching our new core administrative system in 2018, as well as our highly innovative and integrated Population Health Management Program are two of the secrets to our competitive rates.

Our Population Health Management Program enables the highest level of clinical integration possible — allowing our providers to maximize quality and patient experience. With it, continuity of care is maintained, services can be performed in the care setting that is safest and most cost effective, and unnecessary repetition of tests or services is minimized between providers. Further, the model provides savings and predictability for employers because they pay a fixed capitation amount to access the services offered by the care team.

Stay tuned for more information on this unique and differentiated approach. We think you will be excited!

In case you are curious, we will officially release our Q4 rates on July 1. In the meantime, if you have questions, please contact your dedicated account management executive.
