LAREDO, Texas, March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovista Health Solutions (Innovista) has announced a new client partnership with Seven Flags Accountable Care Organization (ACO). Seven Flags ACO was launched in 2016 with 18 Primary Care Physicians, committed to providing high quality, cost effective care to their patients. With the addition of several El Paso Physicians in 2017, the ACO will manage over 10,500 patients in value based contracts.
Seven Flags ACO is comprised of two U.S. Mexico border regions which are characterized by having difficult patient populations to manage due to the inequitable access to health care. The physicians partnering in this ACO have an opportunity to combat these community challenges and improve access to quality care.
This Seven Flags ACO is one of several new ACOs created through the collaboration of Innovista and TMA PracticeEdge. TMA PracticeEdge, LLC, is a services company developed by the Texas Medical Association to bring physicians the technology and expertise they need to take advantage of new health care payment models. To date, ten ACOs have been launched as a result of this thriving partnership. Seven Flags ACO joins Innovista's growing Texas market of independent provider organizations, which includes more than 1,000 physicians providing care throughout Texas communities.
"We are excited to combine our people and management processes with Seven Flags' passionate commitment of providing high quality, value-based care. Together, I feel confident we will see great results in this new ACO," said Rich Steinle, CEO of Innovista Health Solutions.
"Partnering with TMA PracticeEdge and Innovista has allowed the Laredo community to create a thriving ACO that welcomes physicians who are committed to improving overall patient care. Our hopes are to continue to grow the Seven Flags ACO with the addition of new value based contracts and physicians," said Dr. Luis Benavides, President of Seven Flags ACO.
