DALLAS, June 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovista Health Solutions (Innovista) launched a new partnership with physician-led Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Catalyst Health Network (Catalyst). Catalyst is rapidly expanding across the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex area – starting operations January 1, 2015 with 60 Primary-Care providers. Now, closing the second quarter of 2015 with 250 Primary-Care providers.
"We could not be more excited about working with these premier physician groups. Our ACO partners are growing substantially and Innovista's suite of services enable them to deliver unparalleled capabilities to support their independent physicians to improve overall patient care and integrate comprehensive medical management," said Glen Marconcini, CEO of Innovista Health Solutions.
The new ACO is the latest demonstration of independent physicians partnering with Innovista's unique combination of infrastructure, services and experience to achieve their goals of increased quality, efficiency and cost-effective care in Texas. Physicians participating in Innovista partnered ACOs have the support and tools necessary to manage population health across their diverse range of contracts. Patients benefit because their doctors are part of a team that provides high quality and improved, coordinated care.
"We chose to work with Innovista to leverage their expertise and knowledge as we develop and manage our network of Independent Physicians," said Christopher Crow, M.D., President of Catalyst Health Network. "I know that Catalyst Health Network will benefit greatly from the partnership of the Catalyst and Innovista teams to successfully deliver on value-based contracts in the form of higher quality care and critical costs savings."
The new Dallas ACO continues the expansion of Innovista's service offerings in its existing Texas market. Southwest (SW) Provider ACO located in Austin, TX; also partnered with Innovista and was established in January of 2014. In the year and a half since inception, SW Provider ACO has grown to 278 Primary-Care providers and over 422 physician's total, serving patients across the central Texas region.
"Establishing an independent physician-led ACO was a big step for physicians in Austin," said Dr. Kevin Spencer, President, SW Provider ACO. "We knew that we had a great provider network, but needed a service partner that could help us build and manage the business side while we focused on access, quality and innovative care. We are pleased that Innovista has provided us the ability to develop and strengthen our network, as we stand ready for success in 2015."
