HOUSTON, TX & NEW YORK CITY, OCTOBER 20, 2023
Pearl Health, a leading provider of primary care physician (PCP) enablement and risk management services, announced today that it has partnered with ViCare Health, an independent physician association, to help ViCare Health physicians transition to and succeed in value-based care for Medicare patients.
Pearl Health’s technology platform combines data science with an intuitive user experience to help PCPs deliver more proactive, whole-patient care by identifying and engaging with the individuals who are most likely to benefit from proactive care interventions. The company also provides value-based financial arrangements and expert support to help physicians optimize participation and success in value-based care models.
“We are committed to equipping our physicians with the right technology and financial services to adopt value-based care, improve patient outcomes, and lower healthcare costs,” said ViCare Chairman and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Tommy Pham, MD. “We believe Pearl is the right partner to enable our physicians, and are excited to collaborate on accelerating the transition to value-based care for Medicare patients.”
Michael Kopko, Pearl Health CEO and Cofounder, said: “Value-based care cannot succeed in transforming healthcare for patients and providers without PCPs leading the way. ViCare Health is playing a key role in supporting those physicians, and we look forward to jointly delivering the tools and resources they need to adopt value-based care and deliver the right care, to the right patients, at the right time.”
In addition to collaborating with ViCare Health, Pearl recently announced a strategic partnership with Walgreens to enable local PCPs to deliver better-coordinated, higher-touch care to patients in the communities they serve, as well as a strategic partnership with Yuvo to ensure community-led providers have access to the same resources and capacity otherwise only accessible to large institutions.
