Why we’re different

Our goal is to change the health care system by making patients’ experiences easier and more affordable. We’re looking to do this by building a distinctive, highly integrated local provider network that shares real-time data and analyses that results in more connected, personalized care.

With resources including telemedicine, a nurse concierge service and complex care management, we are able to deliver coordinated care through real-time connectivity with providers. And we have significant results to show for our efforts, including lower costs and improved health outcomes. Now that’s innovation.

The Innovation Health Performance Network offers:

  • 1,200+ primary care physicians
  • 5,300+ specialists
  • 21 urgent care facilities
  • 20 hospitals
  • Dedicated Nurse Concierge and Multi-Disciplinary Care Team
