The Market is Ready. Are you?

With consumer demand growing for more efficient, coordinated care, the market is ready for an Operating System that allows physicians to re-imagine the way healthcare is delivered. That’s why leading providers and payors are already exploring partnerships with agilon health.

Two expanding markets we’re committed to serving:

Seniors: 1 in 3 seniors nationally are enrolled in Medicare Advantage. They are voting with their feet for an organized and coordinated system of care unavailable through traditional Medicare. As a result, health plans are increasingly seeking partners like agilon health to respond to these consumer demands.

Vulnerable Populations: Our partners serve over 200,000 Medicaid patients throughout central and southern California and are committed to expanding access to coordinated care in these communities. In fact, Medicaid health plan executives regularly reach out to discuss how we can support innovation and collaboration with their providers.

Model Delivery

To truly transform the delivery of care, there are a few critical philosophies agilon health partners and collaborators must embrace.

Provider partners: Philosophically must believe that moving to value-based care, and more specifically to risk-based contracts, is critical for long-term sustainability of the health care system and their physician organization.  Our model is built on partnership, so we can be flexible with what each party brings to the relationship and what capabilities are brought to the local market.

Health plans: Must embrace the idea that empowered physician organizations will optimally and sustainably influence healthcare quality and cost.

For re-engineering clinical care and creating institutional strength in physician practices that survives well beyond the physicians themselves, there’s no better model than delegated capitation.
-Steve Sell, Chief Executive Officer

Practice Made More Perfect?

The delegated capitation model has a lot of benefits for practicing physicians and the healthcare system as a whole.

– Delinking compensation from service volume allows us to incentivize team-based approaches for an increased patient base and improved outcomes.

– Outside of the fee-for-service environment, coordination of services, wellness programs and specialized services for patients with chronic conditions can be offered sustainably.

– Providers have access to total cost of care data for each patient (by service) for enhanced analytics and transparency.

– Physicians can coordinate care to ensure patients receive the best care at the lowest cost, creating efficiencies that can be fed back into innovative new patient programs.

A wonderful benefit to our partner physicians is the ability to focus less on the Fee For Service hamster wheel while being reinvigorated to adopt best practices and interventions that lead to the ideal outcomes that our patients truly deserve.
