The Wellvana Advantage
We anticipate that Wellvana will become the largest independent provider network in San Antonio. Wellvana is structured to allow both investor physicians (“partners”) and non-investor physicians (“participants”).
Advantages of Membership in Wellvana include:
Reducing cost involves managing patients through the continuum of care. Wellvana resources include the tools, technology and staff to monitor and direct patient flow, with the collaboration of the network providers.
Strengthened Referral Communication.
Wellvana will strive to build bridges between participating PCPs and specialists in order to improve communication around patient handoffs, providers ability to track care received by patients in specialty, acute, and post- acute settings and to follow-up or coordinate services as needed.
In exchange for the CIN’s superior quality and cost improvements, participants are allowed to collectively negotiate with payors for better Fee-for-Service reimbursement rates.
Group purchasing offers better pricing with collective reductions in costs.
Wellvana opens the door to financial opportunity by allowing for shared savings agreements, direct-to-employer contracting, bundled payments, and other value-based payment arrangements.
Assistance with Care Management and IT Support.
Wellvana provides technology, including support and training, that compliments existing EHRs and allows practices to flourish in a value-based economy.
