Eli Lilly & Co. headquarters in Indianapolis.
In what we’ll be seeing more of across America, Indianapolis-based Community Health Network, an eight-hospital system, has launched a joint venture with management company VillageMD to provide analytics and disease-management services to primary-care.
The venture will help Community Health prepare for risk-based contracts.
Some of the approach of the new venture, called Primaria Health, will be informed by what has happened with the Healthy Indiana Plan, the state’s generally successful health program for low-income residents.
The publication reports that “Primaria also plans to market itself to independent primary-care doctors. About 1,000 of them operate across the 38 counties in Primaria Health’s market.”
