Jul 9, 2021

ValueHealth, LLC, the nationally recognized leader in Ambulatory Centers of Excellence (ACE)™, and Ortho Florida, LLC, an organization of aligned orthopedic surgeons committed to advancing value-based care in Florida, today announced a joint venture to create a high-value network of orthopedic focused surgery centers.

The strategic partnership will expand value-based care in the state of Florida with the development of multiple surgery centers focused on hyperspecialty orthopedic programs with an emphasis on providing higher quality outcomes at lower costs. These state-of-the-art outpatient facilities will offer an enhanced patient experience and cost-effective surgical care which also provides better accessibility for local communities.

“Our partnership with Ortho Florida will transform the delivery of value-based care in Florida,” says ValueHealth CEO, Don Bisbee. “We will do this by tapping into ValueHealth’s expertise and reputation for developing demand matching surgical networks and Ortho Florida’s best-in-class physician members who are committed to advancing orthopedic surgical care.”

The network will provide a high-quality care setting for Ortho Florida patients by leveraging ValueHealth’s forward-moving technology platform that manages risk-sharing, warranty contracts, and bundled payment programs, overcoming obstacles that have slowed this transformation before ValueHealth. The platform will allow Ortho Florida physician members to thrive within their practice setting while reducing surgical spend and avoidable cost variation. In addition, the platform enables practices to benefit from the ValueHealth model’s unprecedented net promotor scores over 97%.

“We are excited to join ValueHealth and bring higher-quality, lower cost value-based care to patients in Florida,” says Ortho Florida CEO, Dane Trask. “ValueHealth is aligned with our strategic and patient-centered care goals to improve access to high-quality care. With this partnership, Ortho Florida physician members will continue to raise the standards by improving patient outcomes following orthopedic surgical procedures.”
