ValueHealth and OrthoIllinois Partner to Advance Value-Based Care in Midwest

Aug 17, 2023

ValueHealth® LLC, the nationally recognized leader in value-based specialty care, is expanding its Muve® Orthopedics program and value-based care network with OrthoIllinois, a leading bone and joint healthcare provider in northern Illinois and division of OrthoMidwest.

OrthoIllinois joins ValueHealth’s value-based care network to broaden its payor and employer relationships and offer complex procedures under bundled payment arrangements. As the newest network partner, OrthoIllinois will implement the Muve Orthopedics program at two of its new ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) to augment its total joint and spine services and enhance patient experience and quality outcomes.

The Muve Orthopedics program delivers pre-, peri- and post-procedure care using an innovative patient engagement platform and clinical care pathway. This approach integrates the entire episode of patient care, not just the surgical procedure, and enables a high level of data collection to guide superior quality outcomes at a predictable lower cost. In addition to guiding better patient care, ASC and physician partners use the data to continuously improve efficiency and clinical quality.

“Misalignment and gaps in technology are common barriers for providers and payors looking to adopt new healthcare delivery models,” says ValueHealth President & CEO Don Bisbee. “Our turnkey value-based care solution is aligning healthcare stakeholders like never before and delivering immediate and long-term benefits to those who provide, pay for, and experience care. Together with OrthoIllinois, we can accelerate the adoption of new delivery models in the Midwest while bringing a differentiated orthopedic care option to the local communities.”

“OrthoIllinois is excited about the partnership with ValueHealth,” noted Anthony Brown, OrthoIllinois CEO. “We share a common goal in delivering the highest quality of care, in the right setting, at a more affordable price and believe that together we will be better able to do so in markets we serve.”
