Houston Regional Accountable Care Organization, LLC
(Houston Regional ACO). With Innovista’s experience and leadership in building successful ACOs; the Houston Regional ACO estimates 100 partnering Primary-Care Physicians and 18,000 covered lives by the end of 2015.
“One of Innovista’s goals is to partner with physician leaders who strive to improve the delivery and quality of healthcare,” said Glen Marconcini, CEO of Innovista Health Solutions. “I believe Innovista’s proven track record of leading physicians through value-based contracts and the implementation of our population health strategies will truly benefit the Houston Regional ACO.”
Innovista’s proven success enabling independent physicians to manage value-based arrangements while remaining independent and Houston Regional ACO’s goals are in perfect alignment.
