BETHESDA, Md. and INDIANAPOLIS – August 2, 2021 – Elevance Health, (NYSE: ELV), one of the nation’s leading health companies, and Aledade, an innovative primary care physician enablement company, today announced a partnership that will help enhance the consumer experience and health outcomes for those seeking services from independent primary care practices. The partnership centers on assisting independent primary care physicians across the country transition to value-based care, which is proven to improve health outcomes and lower costs for consumers.
Independent primary care providers participating in Elevance Health’s affiliated plans’ networks – which serve 47 million members – now have the opportunity to access Aledade’s unique suite of technology and local, in-person services. These offerings give independent primary care practices the enhanced tools, support, and resources they need to make the transition to value while delivering the best care to their patients.
“Healthcare reimbursement based on outcomes instead of quantity of services has been debated for decades. Too often, primary care providers want to make this transition but struggle,” said Bryony Winn, President of Health Solutions at Elevance Health. “Partnering with Aledade empowers our independent care provider partners with the tools and insights they need to provide higher quality, more affordable care, while succeeding financially.”
“After more than a decade, the data has clearly shown that value-based care centered on independent physicians leads to care that is good for patients, good for doctors, and good for society,” said Farzad Mostashari, MD, CEO and co-founder of Aledade. “Elevance Health continues to be a leader in supporting physicians in the shift to value, and this collaborative effort will help improve the lives of their members while strengthening anchors of primary care in communities across the country.”
